christmas is coming..
It`s officially exactly a week away. I love Christmas. In fact, it is my favorite
time of year. The pure falling snow, covering the world in a blanket of white.The smell
of the spicy Christmas cookies. Curling up with a blanket (plaid, or course) and enjoying
Hallmark Christmas movies. The tree glowing, and ornaments galore. The many
presents under the tree, and trying to figure out what they are. The cold nights, and
snuggling up under your blankets and falling asleep to the thought of that Christmas is
near. Waking up on Christmas morning, and running in my case, up the stairs, having hot
cocoa and cinnamon rolls (a family tradition), and ripping the paper off the presents, and
seeing if you predictions were correct. Oh, the joy of Christmas, I will never forget.
But most of all. The reason of the joyous, season. Our Savior. Our King coming to this
earth. Not in a fancy hotel, with fine linen sheets, and marble floors. A stable. A stable
with stinky animals, and waste. A manger, as His bed. This is how he came. For us. To grow
to die for us, so we can be with Him, some glorious day! Oh, Christmas. My favorite time
of year. Enjoy it. But don`t forget the real reason for the season.
