Such A Beautiful Time of the Year…

Maybe it’s a little early for a Christmas post…but oh well :). Who agrees that the Christmas season is one of the most beautiful times of the year? The trees are bare and here in the south we don’t get much snow, but I still say that this is one of the most beautiful times of the year. Why? I would say because it is such a joyful time of year! Happiness and love is in the air and the Christmas songs have a way of cheering you up :).

Christmas is also a time of giving..and receiving. And the biggest reason that makes Christmas so beautiful is the gift that God gave us. Many, many years ago God gave us a beautiful and selfless gift. God sent us His only Son, Jesus. And what makes His gift even more special is the reason God sent us Jesus…to die for us. To take our punishment and wash our sins away so that we might be as white as snow. It’s better than any gift we could give..and what gift could be better?

“Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord:
though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red like crimson,
they shall become like wool.”
Isaiah 1:18

Here’s a couple Christmas songs :)
