It seems like to countdown to Christmas started months ago with decorations popping up in the shops at the start of October! But it is just around the corner at last and the carols and festive spirit are now welcome in my home. We traditionally put our Christmas tree up on the first of December and my girls are very excited to do it this afternoon. Christmas in our home looks like quality time with family, a bit of camping and motorbike riding, the hope to read a book in the sun and possible work on some long neglected craft projects!
More than anything though, Christmas to us is a celebration of the birth of our Lord and Saviour Jesus. We make sure the true meaning of Christmas doesn’t get lost in Santa’s presence and presents, and that we stop and thank God for His precious gift to all of humanity.
Have a think about what you’re singing this Christmas and the words of the carols. My favourite is Joy to the World. May you find the time this Christmas to reflect on what it means to you. Let your heart prepare Him room. Click on the link below the image to download a compatible version for your desktop, iPhone or iPad. Enjoy!
