Thoughts on Christmas

During this season I have been thinking about traditions and different ways we celebrate Christmas.

It makes me think of some other holidays we celebrate..Mother's day and Father's day. Both of these days  are designed to show the "person of honor" that we love and honor them and appreciate the sacrifices they have made for us in the name of love.

I know I wouldn't have much of a relationship with  my parents if I only thought of  them one day a year! 
As Christmas comes and goes I want to keep the reason for the season in my heart all year. Jesus wants to have a relationship with each one of us...that is the real reason for the season.

It occurred to me that some of my followers may not own a Bible, if you would like a Bible just email me at I will send you one as a Christmas gift. If you would like me to pray with you, about anything anytime just email me.  

I promised I wouldn't use this blog to preach but I wanted to share these thoughts with you for Christmas.
More ribbonwork  in next post!


  1. Beautiful post and so true. I think of my parents every day and even talk to them. Hope we all keep the Christmas spirit in our hearts always. Thank you for visiting. Merry Christmas to you and yours. Blessings...Lu

  2. Dearest Dana,

    Indeed, the Christmas spirit is supposed to be kept alive for 365 days and not only during the 'commercial' day of Christmas.
    Love to you,
