Christmas Love Letters

Thanksgiving is here!  We truly hope that your day has been full of blessings with family and friends.  There is nothing quite like the love we share with one another especially at the holidays. But honestly, that love does not compare to the love that God poured out on us when He sent His Son here to Earth to live among us.
As we prepare our hearts for the season ahead, I believe it is important to set our hearts off in the right direction.  It is so easy to caught up in the Black Friday  and/or Cyber Monday shopping.  Not that those things are not important…I am all for saving money and getting the best deals!  What if we change our focus this season to showing God’s love to one another.  Offer up your place in line at the store to someone.  Buy someone’s lunch in line.  Purchase someone a coffee.
We can take this beautiful yet chaotic holiday season and turn it in to a kindness movement.
That is what God did for us when He chose Mary to be the mother of a precious gift from Heaven!

This Christmas, why don’t you set the tone for the season by sharing the story of Jesus’ birth with the little ones you hold dear to your heart.  CHRISTMAS LOVE LETTERS from God, written by Glenys Nellist, is a beautiful book for children ages four to eight.  Christmas Love Letters from God cleverly combines both prose and poetry as the story of Jesus’ birth unfolds. The book includes seven stories, beginning with Isaiah’s prophecy and ending with the visit of the wise men. Following each story, the child will find his or her own letter from God, folded into a small envelope attached to the page. Each letter begins with a space in which to write the child’s name, so each one can be specially addressed to the child.

Written as if God is speaking, each personalized message gives the young reader a sense of wonder as they discover anew the Christmas holiday and the birth of Jesus. A very special Bible verse, entitled God’s Perfect Promise, also accompanies each story and letter as God’s personal words of love, promise, and hope.

My family has a beautiful tradition of sharing the story of Jesus’ birth each year.  It is by far the one thing that I LOVE  and LOOK forward to year after year.  We are getting to a place now where they can say what happened all on their own.  That brings such sweet smiles to our faces.  We also welcomed a brand new bundle of joy to our home over a year ago.  Although he may be too little to know the real meaning of Christmas, we have decided that we would use this book and dedicate it to him.  We will fill in his name on the letters so that in the near future, he will get to experience the love of this story just like his other brothers and cousins.  What is even more special is this year we are going to have my father read it to him this Thanksgiving.  We feel that this will help set the tone for our holiday season.  We want to remember the season and extend that love to others that we encounter this season.
