HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESUS!!!
Luke 2:11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
This was first announced to the shepherds, who were the lower class citizens of that day . . .
Jesus was born for all mankind, rich and poor.
Have a birthday party for Jesus, complete with cupcakes and candles and singing happy birthday to Him. Our family does this sometime during the season when we can give Jesus full attention apart from the gift giving to each other. The present for Jesus is always the first to go under the tree, wrapped in gold or silver paper. It is filled with papers from previous years where we have all drawn on one side pictures of several things we are thankful for through the last year. On the other side we have written the things we want to give Jesus in the coming year such as more time with Him or showing more compassion for others, etc. We open the gift at the birthday party and read what each wrote the previous year, make the sheet for the present year, and then wrap it back up. We end the evening with singing Christmas carols by candle light.
Thank you for reading the blog posts during these 25 days of keeping Christ in Christmas.
Have a very Happy Christmas Day!
