We put up our Christmas tree last night and the kids had a blast. It is brilliant to re-live the mystery of Christmas through the eyes of a child. It reminded me of when Jesus said:
Mark 10:15 - "Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”
When we had finished putting the decorations on the tree, we turned the tree lights on and switched the house lights off. As we sat and looked at the tree, we told the boys the real reason for Christmas and they 'got it.'
May Christ be real to us throughout this December, so that when we celebrate Christmas day we will be in awe of the miracle of Jesus.
Living in grace,
Remember you only have until midnight on the 3 December to sign up your family and friends to the blog. There are a few front-runners so far (to win the 5 signed books), but there is still time to surge into the lead:)
