She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.
So, again, I ask: What is Christmas?
Not candycanes, icicles, or people rushing around a mall.
Christmas is the definition of LOVE.
ONE small CHILD was BORN to SAVE US.
People rejected them at their doors, they wouldn't make room, those people couldn't find room in their hearts to spare some space. Save one, who gave them a manger, to where our Lord laid.
Too many people forget that Christmas isn't about big dinners and opening presents or expecting things from everyone (which I know all of you expect things-even I do) , its about realizing that we're only here for a short time, and that we have to make due with it as best as we can. Celebrating the child who was born into this world, and who left it, shedding his own flesh and blood for all of us.
People...are selfish, so much that it almost makes me want to cry. To think that humanity...has lost its humanity. You expect more than you give. You envy more for what someone else has, then what you have. You think of what you didn't get, then for what you did.
Too many people don't believe. I can't change their minds, opinions, etc. But I can pray. I can have hope.
