Through the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives it is extremely easy to look “past” things. Some drive to work the same way everyday and forget to notice the beauty that surrounds them. Others wake up in the morning and go about their day without realizing that they actually woke up. Many have a meal to eat without acknowledging that they are in the small percentage of those who do.

Along with looking past things, we rarely look “into” things. Some don’t realize that “No Shave November” acts as a way to raise awareness of prostate cancer and other male cancer and associated charities. Others will hectically go Christmas shopping for one purpose and one purpose only, to put a gift under the tree. Many don’t realize that there is a distinct reason why we are where we are today, doing what we are doing, being who we are.

Did you realize that Christmas is the day of Jesus Christ’s birth?! Most would say, “Pshh, yes, of course I knew that!” Ok, I kind of believe that, but that was before you started saying “I want, I need, give me that for Christmas!”

I’m a Christian, I believe that Jesus Christ died for my sins and I am so blessed by His grace. I am aware of His birthday on December 25th, but even someone as locked in as myself can lose sight of the beauty in this day of celebration.

Jesus BirthThe subject of giving is an entirely different animal, but I hope and pray that you give for the glory of God and you receive in His name. Give thanks to the Lord for His way, His truth and His life is better than we could ever comprehend. Bless His name always, for He has never left and will never leave us.

God Bless!
