We started a Christmas tradition a few years ago that on Christmas Eve we would all sleep on the living room floor. At 11:50 PM let’s do a roll call, wife-out, 9 year old-out, 7 year old-out, 3 year old-wide awake! As I am waiting for her to fall to sleep so I can “make some deliveries” I am thinking if only I would have known then what I know now before starting a family tradition.
Passing the time I began searching for one of my favorite comedians Tim Hawkins and I found this funny piece on Christmas.
Merry Christmas to everyone as we remember the true meaning of what this day is all about. Enjoy this poem I found on Dan Hawkins’ Leadership Blog on the true meaning of Christmas.
Lisa and I wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas! We hope you are enjoying the holiday and staying focused on the real reason for the season!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
God bless, Dan and Lisa Hawkins
True Christian Christmas
Christmas isn’t showy gifts
Or glittering decoration;
It’s honoring our Savior, Jesus Christ
In humble adoration.
It’s serving those less fortunate,
Meeting their needs before our own;
It’s making sure at Christmas time
That no one is alone.
It’s taking what we would have spent
On things that no one needs,
And using it to help someone
With service and good deeds.
Our Savior showed us how to live
With charity, faith and service.
It makes the holidays a joy,
More peaceful, and less nervous.
So let’s remember Christmas is
About our Savior’s birth;
That’s the way to happiness,
The way to peace on earth.
