The peace of Christmas

To some, Christmas is just a holiday where you give and receive gifts - the more, the merrier. But, Christmas time can bring peace amid all the hard times, a peace that you cannot receive from a gift.

I've been paying close attention to Christmas cards we have received this year. Out of the 7 we have received so far, 4 of them mention Jesus and a contain a Bible verse. One has Seasons Greetings on the front; another one a snow man; another one a child in the snow. None of those mention anything about Jesus. I made sure the ones I bought this year are all about the reason for the season - Jesus. How can I, a Christian, expect non-Christians to consider these cards, if I don't buy and send them myself?

I searched the Internet for other articles on the peace of Christmas. Here are a few of them I came up with:

And, from the bloggers:
There are so many more great articles out on the Internet and on individual blogs. You only have to do a search in google or any other search engine to find them.

May each of you find peace this Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by my place, and thanks for the kind words.

I, too, always make sure that our Christmas cards are appropriate for the season. I appreciate the kind thoughts of all who send us a card, of any sort, but I see no reason to call myself a Christian if I don't keep Christ in Christmas.

(Of course, if you've read much of my bloggings, you know that I fall far short of Christ's teachings much of the rest of the year, but Jesus came to earth for sinners...)
