Christmas Eve is special to me. There are so many happy memories for me associated with this day. There are so many traditions that I love and that my family and friends have on this day. Every year, I take some time, really late at night, and sit in our family room, looking at our Christmas tree. It is in these couple of minutes that I take for myself, that I reflect on what Christmas means; the birth of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. God sent His only son to us.
The Christmas Story, aka Jesus' Birth can be found in Matthew 1:18-25 and Luke 2:1-20
Give thanks this season. Remember the true reason why we celebrate. Show compassion to mankind. Be generous in spirit. Practice peace. The simplest of gestures can make a huge difference.
I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the City of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
