Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. James 1:17
I was reading a Christmas book to Trace the other night and when we finished I asked him if he knew what Christmas was really about. He answered “Yes, presents.” I couldn’t help feeling like a small failure for just a quick second. I replied “Not presents. Do you know who’s birthday we celebrate on Christmas?” He looked at me with a puzzled look and said “Yours?” I snickered and patted the couch next to me. He hopped up and we had a little discussion. I read him the story of Baby Jesus’ birth and answered any questions he had. I told him we celebrate Jesus birthday on Christmas so when you wake up before opening your presents we should say a prayer and wish Jesus a happy birthday. He nodded his head with a grin. I then asked, “Now do you know the reason we celebrate Christmas?” He smirked, and said, “Yep, presents.” Sigh…I have a lot of work to do.
