No matter what activities are done during the festive Christmas season, the most important thing to consider is having fun and lasting memories with your family members. What is more enjoyable than Enjoying the Christmas Season with your family? After all, isnt family what the holidays are all about? There are a lot of things that you can do to make this holiday season extra special for everyone in the family. Some are traditional, and some are unconventional, but solemn and fun, nonetheless. How you celebrated your holiday when you were a kid might also be treasured by your kids today.
On the outset, Jesus had one message - that the purpose of life is the pursuit of joy. There is nothing more and nothing less. Without a single spoken word, Jesus, born of no worldly riches, brought the experience of joy to the world.
It neednt be just a replay from the past. Suppose we caught up to the clearest understanding of the message of Jesus and by doing so change everything. When He said, Ask and it is given, it was literal and when we learn how this works you will wonder why it was you never were taught this at a younger age.
Many families still want to cut down their own Christmas tree, instead of buying those plastic ones in shopping malls. Hunting for a tree is a really fun family activity. There may be a local tree farm nearby, or you need to travel a few more miles. No matter how near or how far, there is always an additional glee in everyones heart thinking that the holiday tree the living room was cut down by Mom and Dad.
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.
This Christmas, give yourself plenty of time to prepare and dont worry if something goes wrong. After all, Christmas is not about where you spend it, or what you do - its about who youre with!
