I was listening to a story about some of the origins of traditions of Christmas as well as frequenting the message boards, forums etc that the discussion of course every single year gets brought about Christmas. The people who celebrate it and the people who do not.  <p> I  realized while thinking about it that people have been arguing about this season for as long as history has been recorded. I wonder sometimes  if in the arguing we forget "Peace on earth. Goodwill toward men." as the angels said when He was born.  Some people argue it is not the right time of year….. and I wonder is there ever a wrong time a year to  love others? <p> Forget Christmas, forget  the traditions, the trees, the lights or whatever it is that you have problems with. Just look at it as a chance to be able to minister to others, a chance to love people in a world where so many awful things happen. <p>
Plus my head can’t take any more arguing!

    hmmm…interesting comment you got there, lol.

    But anyway, I agree with you. The infighting and finger-pointing over Christmas seems very silly to me. I guess I never was really aware of the "fight" about Christmas until the last few years, but my dad says it's been around since the beginning, pretty much. Funny what we get hung up on, isn't it?

    The image of the Babe in the Manger who later hung for my sins bows my head and encourages me to love others with the same sacrificial love!

    Blessed are we to know Him!
    Merry Christmas1
