What is Christmas?

It isn’t about the holiday.  It’s about Hope.

It isn’t about the shopping.  It’s about a Savior.

It isn’t about the packages.  It’s about His Presence.

It isn’t about the bows.  It’s about the Blessing.

 It isn’t about the garlands.  It’s about the Gift.

It isn’t about the tree.  It’s about the Treasure.

It isn’t about the food.  It’s about our Faith.

It isn’t about the decorations.  It’s about Deity made flesh.

It isn’t about the customs and traditions.  It’s about the Child.


An illusive “perfect Pinterest Christmas” is beyond our reach.

Yet, the perfect Christmas Gift is available to all.

Christmas is Love.

Joy.  Peace.  Grace.  Acceptance.  Redemption.

Abundant Life.  Now.  Forever.

And this is the reason I celebrate.
