Today, I was talking to a man I work with about our holiday plans,
When he told me, "I just don't feel like Christmas this year."
That made me sad for him.
I think that slowly we're forgetting why we celebrate this holiday in the first place.
Sure, Santa Claus, the presents, parties and traditions are all a great bonus,
But frankly, The Grinch could take all of those things away if he wanted to.
Christmas will still come,
Just as the Messiah came as a baby in Bethlehem,
To redeem us, His brothers and sisters, from our transgressions
And pave the way to the eternities and life in the hereafter.
What a wonderful and perfect gift our Heavenly Father has given to us,
By lovingly sending His Only Begotten Son to the Earth to be our Savior and Redeemer.
