The Reason for the Season

The reason we allow all the craziness to descend on our lives for a good solid month is that there is a reason for it.  Buried under all the commercialism lies the meaning of Christmas which is to celebrate the gift God gave to us long ago- the birth of His Son Jesus.  Without Jesus there wouldn’t be any point to life let alone this month-long extravaganza!  I read a great blog post today on a site I follow Becoming Minimalist (http://feeds.feedburner.com/becomingminimalistcom).  It is not specific to Christmas but it is a great post about celebrating the little things along the way on our journey to wherever it is we may be going.  This time of year means different things to each of us and each of celebrates differently.  There is not one way to do it all that we should all look to emulate.  Enjoy what the season brings to your home and to your heart.  Enjoy the steps along the way.  It makes the journey worth taking.
