Emerald’s Gem Box: Merry Christmas!

The countdown is finally over …… Christmas is here! All the children (and many adults) are now counting the hours down till Santa Claus arrives!
Let the fun begin!
 Hundreds of glasses of milk and cookies will be left out, with only crumbs and an empty glass left for the children to find the next morning.
I would like to take this time to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas, but I hope too, that we all don’t forget that this season is actually meant to celebrate the birth of Jesus. The celebration of His birth can be easily hidden behind Santa Claus unless we make it a point to bring it to the forefront of our lives.  I also believe, as parents, it is our responsibility to make sure we teach our children to keep Jesus as “the reason for the season.”
Make Christmas be about Jesus and His birth and His love for all of us.  Make Christmas be about family, friends and fellowship.  Make Christmas be about showing love and giving to others out of love and kindness. Furthermore, teach your children these same aspects; for what they learn now will follow them into adulthood.
Merry Christmas to all of our faithful readers.  May God bless each and every one of you!
Until then….see you around the town.
