The birth of our Lord Jesus is an amazing event to celebrate! God the Father gave up His precious only son, giving Him to the likes of us to provide what not one of us deserves. Can you imagine the feeling of sending your beloved child to a place where only a few would welcome him, knowing he would be mistreated and brutally killed? Can you comprehend the love behind a sacrifice like that?
The very least we can do this Christmas season is slow down enough to focus on The Light that we're celebrating. He's done SO much for us--let's not forget about Him in the hustle and bustle and expectations and stress and family issues and . . . anything else that might distract us from Him.

You are Loved,
