Is Christmas special because of things?
Are I-Pods, I-Pads, I-Phones, flat-screen televisions,
video games, clothes, perfume, jewelry, toys, household goods
and other things the true blessings of Christmas?
Sometimes we think so.
If that is what we focus on, then that is all we see.
I think the ones who have suffered or are suffering loss
When we lose a loved one, lose our health, or
a loved one is sick or suffering, our perspective changes.
Christmas is really about the relationships.
It is about being with the ones we love
and blessing the ones we love.
Ultimately it is about the greatest relationship of all.
That God would love us enough to rescue us
from death and suffering.
We celebrate the birth of Jesus,
the answer to our suffering.
The one who gives us life.
Christmas is about our relationship with our Savior and
our relationships with our loved ones.
All the things, without someone to share it with,
On the other hand, if we don’t have the things,
our loved ones are all we really need.
