It's hard for me to wrap my head around that precious little baby being born in the cold, and sleeping on the hay, surrounded by animals.
When I think of this, I realize just how much we are loved. Because of this, Christmas has a very special meaning for me. I think about it every Christmas eve, and give thanks for my salvation. I realize that I'm not worthy, and am only saved by his Grace.
I hope that everyone will reflect on the true meaning of Christmas this year. As you exchange gifts, remember the gift that was given to you, and continues to give to you every day.
