The Essence of CHRISTmas

Merry CHRISTmas 
everyone!!! 
When I was a kid, I only knew 2 things:
Santa was my fairy godmother (with a big belly),
and
Christmas was a time of money and toys.

I grew up in a family where we celebrate Noche Buena,
get angbaos, open gifts,
showing off our new clothes and go to church,
just because it’s tradition.
Of course I knew the story that Jesus was born.
That we commemorate his birth.
(aren’t the kids too cute!!! :D)
But that’s just it,
I never really knew the essence of why we celebrate CHRISTmas…
I was more excited on what’s inside Santa’s stocking,
or what’s underneath our Christmas tree…
As a kid, I wasn’t informed properly.
As an adult,
I somehow loved the worldly things,
instead of knowing the meaning of CHRISTmas.
But, as it’s been said,
Christ will find a way to your heart…
So I’d really like to take this moment,
to share with you…
The real meaning of this season.
The real meaning of CHRISTmas 🙂

I pray that everyday,
we celebrate as if it’s Christmas day…

Forgive people who have done you wrong;
Love one another as Christ loves you.

Remember,
Jesus paid the sacrifice PAST, PRESENT, FUTURE.

“He is a light to reveal GOD to the nations,
and he is the glory of your people Israel!”
– Luke 2:32

“For a child is born to us,
a son is given to us.
The government will rest on his shoulders.
And he will be called:
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
– Isaiah 9:6

Thank you for taking time to read my blog…
May we spread the love of God, not only on Christmas day,
but EVERYDAY 🙂
