Christ in Christmas

Christ in Christmas

Wow, i hadn’t realised how long it’d been since my last post, i’m sorry for my lack of commitment to the schedule. Advent is always a busy time for me, and sometimes i get carried away in the festivities, not leaving much time for anything else. But i thought i should get at least one more post out before the new year. And it’s a subject that we must hold dear in this season.

I love Christmas time. I love the lights, the extra church services, the encouragement to spend time with those we hold dear. All of these things are a huge part of Christmas for me. Yet, the more i think about it, the more i realise there’s something missing from this list.

The present of his presence.

The present of his presence.

At the time of writing, it’ll be just under two weeks to Christmas. I love Christmas, its honestly one of my favorite times of the year, Of course I love it for being the time where we celebrate the birth of our savor Jesus Christ, however i tend to find smaller things that i also love along with this amazing event. I love the atmosphere, I love the lights, I love the gingerbread lattes that only really get sold at this time of year! But one of the biggest reasons I love this time of year is a simple one. It’s a time of year where not only is everyone seems to be a lot more open to the love of God. Continue reading “The present of his presence.”
