Three wise men came to visit Jesus. The star led them. They adored and offered gifts of gold, Frankincense and myrrh. On Christmas day the churches and the houses set up a cribs, symbolizing the naturally scene. On Christmas it is a custom to hang a star outside the house or church to remember the tail star which appeared on Christmas day.
If you as a child often spent delightful hours in the kitchen with your Mom preparing Christmas dinner, your kids too will surely take pleasure in helping you out in the kitchen. They dont have to help you with the baking; they can make their own treats like putting frosting on the cake or making chocolate covered pretzels.
Everything you ever got in your life, whether it was a situation, or circumstance or an event or physical reality, it was always preceded by thoughts. There was no physicalness to its reality, and it began with a thought. What you desire is becoming when you are happy. It is moving into manifested reality. And it is the state of joy that allows for it to show up. This is what Jesus meant when He so often said ask and it is given and believe it and it shall be.
May you carry the joy you create everywhere you go?
If your kids are old enough to decide for themselves which decorations they like to put up in their rooms, then give them the freedom to do so. With you beside, let them shop for the Christmas decorations of their choice. Just remember to take snapshots of each of the family activities during the holidays, to have a lasting memory of the season.
With gift shopping, preparing the house for visitors, cooking and baking to organise, you probably have a lot to juggle as Christmas approaches. Being prepared before the Christmas rush hits will save you a lot of time and stress - allowing you to relax and enjoy the holiday season. Do some of your Christmas food shopping in October or November, buy presents early or order them online, and make a list of what needs to be done. Ticking tasks off your list gradually throughout November and December will ensure an easy, stress-free Christmas.
