Feliz Navidad

Truth is I did try to get around posting this before today but it’s all good being able to do it today all the same. It’s about my 7th month of blogging too and I must confess I’ve been blessed indeed to share all I have so far.

A Merry Christmas to you all. It’s a season of celebration and joy again, with family, friends and loved ones. Everyone trying to outdo each other with gifts, first calls and texts, but whose birthday is it anyways?

I’m a Christian and have been all my life, so the story behind this season is not only one I know but also believe in. It’s the foundation of the Christian faith and anchor. It’s basically a simple one, but takes faith to accept as truth.

Many years ago, in the little town of Bethlehem, a virgin gave birth to a baby boy in a manger. A child that had been prophesied to come in a special manner to live a model life, teach life changing truths and lay down his life that man may be reconciled back to the maker, God Himself. And that child was God Himself in the flesh. Only Him could offer the atonement required for the reconciliation.

Some are yet to believe this truth, since they cannot grasp the sense in it. How could such happen? Why would such happen? I pray that even as I may not be opportune to share that now, that as they also celebrate this birthday God would cause light to shine in their hearts to understand and then believe.

For those who have believed, let this year’s Christmas be another opportunity to be grateful that He came and we are His.

A wonderful Christmas again to everyone, from me and my family.
