What Christmas Isn't About

Christmas isn't about family.

There I said it.

It's not about getting together and exchanging presents, it's not about seeing people you haven't in awhile.

It's not about catching up, it's not about seeing your kids in their Christmas pajamas.

It's not about making family memories that will last a lifetime.

Christmas isn't even about how we celebrate this years December 25th.

Christmas is about what happened 2000 years ago when God wrapped in flesh came to redeem the world.

The quickest way to be disappointed on Christmas is to make it about anything else.

Family gatherings are never as precious as we envision, children are not as grateful as we had hoped, and that perfect family moment never happens.

And yet in the stillness of the past, there was a perfect Christmas, everything fit with God's perfect plan, and a child was born, and a world was changed.

Have you heard about my free e-book for Mom's?
