One of the traditions my family does is buying and decorating a Christmas tree! It's something my family looks forward to at Christmas! One of my brothers made the comment that our Christmas tree is ugly if it isn't lit up, but when it is, the whole tree looks lovely! That is just like the world! The world is a dark place because it is full of sin but when Jesus enters our lives there is a wonderful light because Jesus is the Light of the World!
John 8:12: "When Jesus spoke again to the people, He said 'I am the Light of the World. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the Light of Life.'"
Christmas is one of the only times when people aren't offended if you mention Jesus' name. Everyone attends church and listens to sermons on Jesus' birth, death, and resurrection!
I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!
P.S. There may not be any more posts until the new year because Kat and I will probably be busy; so,Happy New Year if I don't post until 2010!
