Deeper Meaning….

Christmas will be here in just a few days.  The chaos of shopping, wrapping, cooking, cleaning and getting lost in the commercialism of it all is ALMOST over…

Soon, our children will be sleeping with visions of sugarplums dancing in their heads….

Awaiting the arrival of “Santa Claus” and a plethora of gifts – many of which they don’t even need.

Somehow, along the way….we’ve lost the true meaning and we’ve gotten sucked into the materialistic clutches of society.

"Black Friday" Marks Start Of Holiday Shopping Season

Even the best of us get caught up in the tradition of shopping til we drop, giving more gifts than necessary, and pushing the true meaning on the back burner….

Over the next few days, I want to challenge you all to look a little deeper into yourselves – reconnect with the true meaning of Christmas…

And remember that this season is about the birth of our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ.

And rethink how we can make this season more meaningful and less commercial….

This Christmas, may you find the true spirit of Christ all around you…and may you shine it for all the world to see.

May you find Love and Light and true Blessing this Christmas as we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ,
