Hello Blogville Family,
I am using this massive opportunity to wish everyone a MERRY, JOYFUL, HAPPY CHRISTMAS..
Not a massive fan myself and NO Jesus was not born on the day nor does SANTA give any presents. Well, I do not think that matter much, fact is JESUS was born, and 25th is the day chosen to celebrate it. About Santa, there are so many stories about HIM that I do not know who to believe or what.
Regardless, Christmas derived from someone or somewhere and it is now the most celebrated time of the YEAR with the whole point of sharing and giving.
FACT: CHRISTMAS is a tradition and it has been celebrated for years and many years to come. It is part of our culture and we can chose to ignore it or celebrate it. Its an option.
FACT: Christians are largely known to celebrate CHRISTMAS as the birth of our saviour, that in itself is also a TRADITION.
Jesus birth should be celebrated in our hearts everyday (in my opinion).
Anyways, I will not condemn Christmas or say anything negative about it.
All I will say I am not connected to CHRISTMAS as much I used to when I was a child but its what it is.
Having said that, IT IS A BEAUTIFUL TIME OF THE YEAR with so much joy and laughter to share.
So to My BLOGVILLE FAMILY, THANK YOU FOR THE JOY, LAUGHTER, HOPE, ENCOURAGEMENT, LOVE, OPENNESS, ADVICE AND SO MUCH MORE I HAVE EXPERIENCED.
I love the blogsville family and I pray that all you desire this CHRISTMAS will happen. As tradition is celebrated once again, I pray our Good Lord who I know probably has different mindset to CHRISTMAS (God ways are not our ways) will look upon us and send us wonderful gifts.
SO YEAH TO EVERYONE, I AM NOT FOR OR AGAINST CHRISTMAS but I WILL WISH US A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS..
Congratulations to everyone that has received a wonderful Christmas presents this year i.e. new baby, new job, hubby, new house, new beginnings, 2nd chances, healing, breakthrough, forgiveness, promotions, salvation, empowerment, etc.
To those of us that are still waiting on God, staying hopeful or depending on our faith for a miracle. CONGRATULATIONS in advance. I live by faith not by sight. So there you go, I rejoice with you and your testimony that awaits you.
God is love, love yourself and on others too..
HAVE A MERRY JOLLY Cheresimse. (that was me trying to write Christmas in yoruba).lol.
