Pastor’s Pen…

Thanksgiving is over and now you are free to decorate for Christmas (although some have been doing it since August).  I say that in fun of course because I enjoy the season of Christmas very much.  I enjoy the cold weather the mostly happy looks on people’s faces and even the mushy movies on the Hallmark channel.
I have also learned to take full advantage of everything this time of year brings.  Gatherings with friends and family, the warmth of a smile from someone you just met, the squeals and laughter of children playing, and the comfort of knowing that God loved us so much He sent Jesus Christ to be our perfect gift.
So, as we enter this time of celebration I hope and pray that you can truly enjoy the reason for the season.  Enjoy the little things that this time of year brings, try not to make Christmas something it isn’t.  God doesn’t expect us to do anything to impress the in-laws or the outlaws, I believe He wants us to simply enjoy Him and celebrate this time of year with those whom Jesus came to save.
Feliz Navidad,
Bro. Brian
