Do you plan to attend a church service to celebrate the Birth of Christ?
Do you plan to have a Christmas Tree? Is so, Why?
Do you plan to have a nativity in your home or yard?
“If your plan is having no plan, do you have a plan?”
When I reflect on the fact that Jesus left heaven to visit with us on earth and fulfill the plan for our salvation through The Virgin Birth, the Cross and Resurrection I want to celebrate. I really donвЂ™t think I have celebrated Christmas without a Nativity scene as a reminder of such a miraculous birth. It would not be Christmas for me without this reminder because I always think a Royal without a place to be birth is more than humble.

Today our Movie, TV and POP stars have castles, mansions and even whole islands to give birth or have a Birthday Party. Our Savior only had a manger in a stable without balloons, booze and drugs to assist in the birth.

I even love Santa because he gives gifts and laughter and fun for the young and old. He makes me understand just a little of how much Jesus really gave with each little item Jolly O pulls out of his sack and HO HO HO to all Merry Christmas as a reminder of a Birthday Party for a King.
