Only 365 days to Christmas! It will take us that long to get over this one! By then we will only owe six months on the eighteen month no interest wash machine. We only will have half as much left on the credit cards we loaded up to pay for the toys the kids broke two days out and the others lost interest in two weeks out. We will have eleven months to get over all the drama and musical practices. Maybe in the next 365 days we can figure out that Christmas is Christ’s birthday and not ours. That the real meaning of Christmas is not about debt and work. That the real meaning of Christmas is freedom and rest. He came to free us from the chains of this world and sins penalty. Christmas is the day we celebrate with family and friends all He gave us so we can commit ourselves to giving Him to those who have not received Him yet! Merry Christmas!
