Christmas Season is upon us!
I love spending time with my little family. This year marks the first “big” Christmas year for my children. My oldest is now 3.5 and is fully aware of decorating, trees, Christmas, and singing of carols. My wife and I decided we needed to do it up right, so, out with the 2 foot tall tree we had pre-kids and up with the 7.5 foot (fake) big tree.
I knew he would have a blast putting it up, but was not expecting how excited he really was.
I cannot wait until the day he fully understands the reason Christmas is celebrated. Not Santa, Not Gifts, but to remember the birth of our savior and to use Christmas as a reminder that we are children of God, and he is worthy of our Praise. We should not be bowing at the feet of spoiled consumerism. I should add, this does not mean I am anti-capitalist, just looking to keep life simple, and keep God the focus of this season.
Jeanine and I want to leave a Godly legacy with our children. To do that, we need to keep in mind the wake we leave behind us.
Blessings to you this season.
