HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESUS!!

CHRISTMAS DEVOTIONAL
Excerpt taken from "The Real Meaning Of Christmas"
By Martha Noebel
CBN Staff Writer

Christmas is when we celebrate the birth of the Christ child. God sent His Son, Jesus, into the world to be born. His birth brought great joy to the world. Shepherds, wise men, and angels all shared in the excitement of knowing about this great event. They knew this was no ordinary baby. The prophets had told of His coming hundreds of years before. The star stopped over Bethlehem just to mark the way for those who were looking for this special child.


Why did He come? Why did God send His son to this sometimes cruel and hard world? He sent Jesus to us so that one day, He would grow up to become a very important part of history. His story (history) is one of truth, love, and hope. It brought salvation to all of us. Without Jesus, we would all die in our sins.


Jesus was born so one day the price could be paid for the things we have done that are wrong. The Bible says that all have sinned. We are all born with a sin nature. We do things that do not please God. Through the sins of Adam and Eve, we have all inherited that sin nature. We need to have that removed. The only way is through Jesus. Jesus came so He could die on the cross for ALL of our sins. If we believe that Jesus died for our sins, we can ask Him to come into our hearts and forgive us. Then, we are clean and made whole. We can know that heaven is a place where we can go to when this life is over.


We can truly be happy at Christmas! No matter what may be happening, we can know that we are His children. We then become sons and daughters of God. Heaven will be our home one day.


Look at Christmas in a new way this year. This is the year to invite Jesus into your heart. You will then have a "Merry Christmas." The joy and peace you will receive will last all year as you look to God for all your needs to be met. Jesus Is The Reason For The Season! Rejoice!


In celebration of the birth of Jesus we exchange gifts. This year I participated in something new...a blogger Secret Santa Gift exchange. Yesterday I received my gift from my Secret Santa. Look what Santa got me...
Gorgeous box filling popped out revealing these 2 super cute gift boxes
This beautiful bracelet and these fabulous earrings were inside! 
Both are by Vera Wang.

I wore my lovely gifts with this Christmas outfit (I tried to twist the earring so that you could see all the pretty stones).

Vintage Dress
Steve Madden Boots
F21 Feather Stole
Finger-less Gloves by Lane Bryant
I found out today that my Secret Santa was Curves and Confidence!! Thank you so much girl. I love love love my gifts! 


I leave for Arizona on Christmas day. Please pray for traveling mercy.
Merry Christmas to ALL!
Kiah
