All I want for Christmas

I know that I'm getting older. I can tell...because instead of wanting things for Christmas, all I want is love. I know that sounds so incredibly cheesy, but I can't describe it any other way.

I love to give gifts to people. Absolutely love it, but I just don't even hardly know where to begin because I get so excited and overwhelmed that I want to buy like 5 things for each person. I'm really not kidding. I think it's going to be bad whenever we have little kiddos (I will need a budget for sure).

This Christmas, more than anything under the tree, more than Christmas music, Christmas lights, hot chocolate, warm fuzzy feelings, watching a classic Christmas movie, or hanging out at an ugly sweater party, I just crave Jesus. He is the only thing that truly makes me happy deep down inside, and it's his BIRTHDAY!

So beyond all the Christmas tree decorating and the gift-wrapping, don't forget to celebrate that child in a manger that came so long ago and knew you before you ever knew yourself. Let him bless your heart this Christmas, because if you truly give him the chance, he sure will!

"Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we saw His star in the east and have come to worship Him." Matthew 2:2
