Not so Wordless Wednesday
Lucy, our house princess, is a Christmas baby. She was born on Christmas Eve and will be 4 years old in a couple of weeks. She has brought much joy into this home with her happy disposition.
Christmas Music Marathon – Day 13
I have mentioned that the primary reason for this marathon is to focus on the reason we celebrate Christmas. This is the season when people seem to be a little more willing to give. They seem to be more willing to show a little kindness to their fellow man and help someone with a need. We may talk about Santa Claus and being naughty or nice, but the celebration is about the birth of the Savior of the world. 700 years prior to that first Christmas night in Bethlehem, the prophet Isaiah (7:14) proclaimed the coming of the King of kings. He even knew what the Son of God would be called, “Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son and shall call his name Immanuel.” Immanuel means, God with us. In other words, God was coming to this earth as a baby boy and live among men. If there is a church near you that is holding a Christmas Eve service, I encourage you to attend and spend a few minutes thanking our Creator for His marvelous gift of salvation. Why do we celebrate Christmas: The reason is in the name, CHRIST – mas.
