Hello there. Seasons greetings, Happy holidays, Merry merry happy, etc.
I've had this blog since october of 2010 and have yet to post anything...
I'm looking to get internet fame in the near future-
so i'm going to branch out and try out all blogging sites.
It's finally Christmas break. a time to relax. a time to eat. a time away from school with our families. The time we've been looking forward to since the beginning of the semester.
Working in retail, ruins the holidays. I know this from experience...So if you go out and shop tonight or tomorrow thank the cashier. Thank the courtesy clerks, thank the people around you in the stores because while you are off work and enjoying time with your family. They don't have that opportunity.
Anyways- I saw this picture the other day, and it definitely changed my perspective on the holidays and gifts and giving. I'm a hypocrite, one of the biggest, and yet I haven't changed my ways when it comes to clothing and other unnecessary things in my life.
As we go through this season of holidays, the wrapping paper, the Santa, the lights, cookies, and family traditions remember why we celebrate. Remember the greatest gift ever given to us.
Here's a nice cliche saying to go by:
Remember the reason for the season.
"This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about, His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit. Because Joseph her husband was faithful to the law, and yet did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly. But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel”(which means “God with us”).When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife. But he did not consummate their marriage until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus."
