Keeping Christ in Christmas

December 24, 2010 at 1:41 PM Leave a comment

          My children will be making a birthday cake today so that we can have a birthday party for Jesus tomorrow. They know that we celebrate Christmas because of the greatest gift God first gave us – His son. In turn, we have given the only gift we can to Jesus, and that is our hearts. Because we cannot give Him any greater gift, we share gifts with each other to remind us of how good it truly feels to thoughtfully and lovingly give to one another.   Through symbolism, we share His great love.

         (No, I’m not a fool.  I know my children love to receive gifts, too.  Don’t we all?  Enforcing our core belief in this manner, however, will give them roots in what is right.  From here, they will blossom into true appreciation of gift-giving.  Never underestimate the power of the mind, nor the repitition of what’s right.) 

          We always invite our neighbors to come over for a thankful prayer, birthday song, and a piece of cake in His honor. This has become our family tradition, with this being the 8th year inviting neighbors.  We are so blessed by all those who join us!

          Merry Christmas, from The Whelan Family

          Do you have any not-so-traditional family traditions this time of year?
