Where are you CHRISTmas?

I was in a store today and witnessed two women having it out over who was going to be the lucky one to walk out with the last initial "A" clip board. I honestly wanted to walk over, grab it myself and run with it... but instead I turned around and walked out. I couldn't even stand to hear them from afar anymore... so annoying. So petty. Ick.

I'm not going to say "Keep Christ in Christmas" because it's become a bit cliche at this point, so ya know, I'll put it another way. While you're shopping for the perfect gifts for your family and friends these next few days before Christmas, remember that the very first Christmas gift was a child. Remember who that child grew up to be and what he gave us all.

To those two women in that store today:
Your initial clip board can't hold a candle to that.

10 love notes:

  1. This is such a great thought. I know I have to remind myself every year when I'm trying to find those perfect gifts.


  2. hahaha yea i know but why a candle?


  3. Right there with you girl. It makes me sad that people don't say "Merry Christmas" anymore....

    We're having a birthday party for Jesus with the kids this year, so that they never forget what it's about. =)
