I love this time of year, celebrating Christmas. I love decorating the tree, cooking and watching stories about Christmas. Especially the ones that tell the story of the birth of Christ, my risen Savior.
The Christmas tree reminds of when the people from afar brought gifts to Christ Jesus when He was born. It was an act of love and a celebration of life. The Messiah that would save the world. We can not save the world, but we have the answer, Christ Jesus. Christ Jesus, the hope or our calling. The one who gives, peace, joy, happiness in the midst of trouble and when there is no trouble.
It is during this season, that people from all over the world seem to unify and celebrate. People give freely of their heart, just as Christ gave freely of Himself.
