Many variations in just what people put on a Christmas Tree and there are new things as well as old traditions applied; live trees and artificial trees are in use to day. Sometimes “The Star of Bethlehem” is put at the very top; sometimes and Angel.
Share Jesus with anyone and everyone; you may help someone gain peace, joy, purpose and eternal life.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
We have Hope in our future because Jesus Christ came to offer a way to share eternity with GOD. We have Joy because of that and how we can share this greatest gift of all. Christians mimic this at this time of year by exchanging gifts or giving them and not expecting them in return. We take part in all kinds of programs designed to benefit the less privileged in our communities and even the whole world. The giver receives as much, if not more, joy that the receiver.
Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.
How wonderful to watch the innocent faces of the children all a glow during this time of year. The laugh and sing and dash about within our midst helping us to feel younger, remember our youth and encourage new joy at whatever age we are.
