The Greatest thing about Christmas is the reason behind Christmas. It is not only in that precious sweet baby and the incredible story of how our Saviour has come into the world. But so often, we can lose sight of the true meaning of Christmas. Why He came here in the first place. It was to live out His Father's Will and to die for the sin's of mankind. His introduction was Meek and Humble, but so was His death where He cried out, "Forgive them, for they know not what they do."
As a Family Tradition, we all gather around the Christmas tree and before we open gifts, we recognize why we even give gifts in the first place, and that is because Christ is our gift for Salvation. Then we ask our children why do we have a tree with lights on it? So we can be a light in this world through Jesus. Then, we ask our children why there is a star at the top of our Tree? Because, the wise men followed a star to baby Jesus. Then, my husband reads the Christmas story and we open our gifts to receive a blessing from each other in honour of the blessing that God has given us.
So from all of us here at Dyslexic Homeschooling, many blessings to you,
MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
