As I walked down the crowded isles I was ever reminded that Christmas is not about the gifts...but about the PRESENCE! It is about our Savior that came to earth as a baby. The Christ child that was born to die so that we can live.
It is much fun to give and receive gifts. Special traditions and time with family is ever so special. But as the consumerism of the world swirls around us, take time to quiet down and bask in the PRESENCE of a risen Savior. For the holiday we celebrate... is ALL ABOUT JESUS!!!
