Why we celebrate . . .

Jesus Is The Reason

In Bethlehem, God gave to us
The source of Christmas joy;
A star shown on a miracle:
The virgin birth of a boy.

He was born both God and man,
A Savior for us all,
The way to get to our heavenly home,
If we just heed His call.

So as we shop and spend and wrap
And enjoy the Christmas season,
Let's keep in mind the sacred truth:
Jesus is the reason.

The Real Reason

It seems like it's party time filling the air;
Special lights bring brightness and glitter;
Christmas carols are sung everywhere;
Stacked presents can make a heart twitter;

But the lights and the trees and the parties
All add and don't take away
From the birth of our Savior, Jesus,
The real reason for this holiday.

  2. Katy Lin,
    Thank you for stopping by my blog. I am enjoying reading your blog.
    Love the mug! It is the reason and we wouldn't celebrate the season if it wasn't for him.
    Thank you for sharing.
    Hugs, Bobbi Jo-AZ

  3. Good, good post. For all the times I say something like "Jesus is the reason for the season," I still allow PRETTY MUCH ANYTHING ELSE to get in the way of Him and His priorities.


Always great to hear from you! I ALWAYS read your comments, and they make my day!

Thank you!
