Trying to Stay in the Christmas Spirit…

I am trying to get into the Christmas Season…

k5980468

A special time of the year…

For the young it’s Santa k4982380… presents… decorations…

as it should be…

Of course the real meaning should take priority… but, sometimes it gets lost in the doing of “things”…

I love the Reason for the Season!…

Our Dear Lord coming to us in the form of a Special Christ Child…

who later takes the Sins of the World on HIS shoulders

We should be glorifying HIM…

but, in my heart I know HE is smiling… when HIS precious children…

crawl upon the lap of Santa with those wide eyes of wonder

to confide in the Red Suit Man what they would like to have as a present…

Thank You Jesus!

 

 

I’ve made a few phone calls to people I wanted to get in touch with… k11313815
