I love this time of year but often I find the true meaning gets left behind, apart from your local school navity play, the name Jesus is never really mentioned these days.
I've been teaching my little girl about the first christmas and the more we read the stories and the more we sing songs, the more disheartned I become.
I find myself asking what is christmas really all about....
the answer I keep coming back to is EASTER!!

Strange I hear you say.... but that surely is the reason the Son of God came to earth as a baby, to become the Saviour. To become the Saviour He had to die on a cross, then rise three days later.
So its not so strange that I find myself thinking about Easter at this time.

A friend asked me (or asked people on her blog) how do you know you have faith?
I'm afraid to say I can't answer that, because I just do. I cant explain it, its just something I have. I believe not because I've seen it, not because it makes my life easy (cause most of the time it doesn't), and not because its a warm furry feeling you get on a sunday morning but I believe because God opened my eyes and until He opens yours I strongly believe you will never truly understand what real faith is.
I say that not to get peoples backs up, but from my heart.
So I ask that you stop in the hussle and bussle of christmas to spare a thought for the real reason for this season, and if you want real faith, to ask God to open your eyes, I know He will.

I blame myself for this post. Well, me and Christmas. And that book. What else can I blame?

Will have a think and get back to you on that one.

To me Christmas is about family. I wont be with my family this year as i wandered off, got lost, and am now in Oz. Thankfully there are no talking scarecrows. Although some people who have been on the beach to long look like one.

The Post Office!!! I also blame them.
