I hope you all have a wonderful Merry Christmas today! I know I am!
I am 29 years old. Married to an amazing man of God. I have two little boys and a little girl who are just blatent examples of Gods love for me, as if Jesus wasn't enough! Our family goes to The Village Church and we LOVE it! We have two dogs; Pixie and Harley. Just a simple life, thank goodness!
Yay! I am pregnant! What an amazing Christmas present for our family! We are so excited to have a new addition to our family in the middle of August or so. I guess with the third pregnancy comes a really quick gut!LOL My belly is already sticking out and I am just trying to figure out if I am retaining water, or if this is the start of my belly bump?! Fun stuff!
Ok, well this Christmas I am definitely in the spirit. I am just having one problem that is especially weighing on my heart. Why??? Do people celebrate Christmas that don't follow Christ? And, why do these kind of people who celebrate Christmas, and those who don't celebrate Christmas care whether people say "Merry Christmas?" I mean, it has always bothered me that people are stifled out of saying "Merry Christmas" but just this year it is occurring to me (and frankly driving me crazy) that people want Christmas, but they don't want the meaning. They want presents, and they want the good feeling that Christmas brings, but they don't want the reason that we even have such a holiday... and really, sadly they don't know that the meaning is so much more important than the stuff! Why would we say Happy Holidays? Why would we have a Christmas tree, why would we spend billions of dollars every December if it wasn't to celebrate the life of our Savior, and WHY the heck would we try to put a different name on it? Or not shout it from the rooftops?
