    This Christmas I am remembering the reason for the season.

    This is a special Christmas. It is unlike any other. There may have been Christmas's that you remember for the new bike or favorite childhood toy, your first time together with the one you love, your babies first Christmas, and other such memorable times. There may have been Christmas's of illness, or even the loss of a loved one. No matter the circumstances that surround the holiday season this Christmas will be like no other Christmas past or future. It is Christmas present.

    Beneath the tinsel, garland, lights, and ornaments, and beyond the wrapped packages under the tree, Christmas present holds meaning that no other one has. God's Christmas present to you is eternal life. The present may have been delivered in a manger over two thousand years ago, but today He still lives and reigns. He is the Christ. Jesus Christ is not temporary and can not lose His luster like the holiday. He is the gift that lasts forever. So in this present Christmas, the one that is swirling around you faster than you can believe, put aside the hustle and bustle, get beyond the long lines and traditions and be still and know that He is God. He is the reason for the season. Come let us adore Him!

    You may have been so busy shopping for Christmas gifts that you forgot what the season is all about. Jesus Christ is the reason for the season and wise men (and women) still seek Him. - Gail Lindsay
