Dear Kindred,

We went to the Charlie Brown Christmas play this week and I think Charlie Brown said it best…

It’s not what’s under the tree that matters, it’s whose around it!

– Charlie Brown

Amen Charlie Brown. Why do we celebrate Christmas each year? Because, boyyyyy oh boy do we need a savior! Christmas offers us time to reflect on the things important to us, especially the people around us, but the best thing yet, it reminds us that Jesus IS the reason for the season!

Once Upon a time, a long, long time ago. Begins the story of a baby, that most of you should know. His daddy’s name was Joseph, and Mary was his mom, This babe was very special He was God’s only Son. Some angels came from heaven, and they began to sing. To the shepherds in the fields below, “Glad tidings do we bring!” A bright star lit the heavens, to light the magi’s way, to the baby in a manger, who was born on Christmas day. And all who gathered round Him, Rejoiced and praised His birth. For the babe, the King, named Jesus, is our Savior here on Earth.

Let us not forget to take a moment to prepare our hearts for this Christmas season.

Lord, give me eyes to see, ears to hear and a heart to understand the signs, beauty and wonder of the One I am waiting for. This season, may we give to him by loving as he loves. May we fill the world with the light of his love. The symbolism of Jesus is all around us even in the animation of all the Christmas fun. May we have a Christ centered celebration full of love, red & green, sparkles, bows, hot drinks, cheesy movies, caroling, traditions, snowmen, yummy food, warm hearts and all the Christmas goods!

Oh andddd Faux FUR! It’s really a no brainer right?

Not only are you ever so stylish, its a warm trend and I am ALL ABOUT THAT. The different cuts, textures, patterns and colors offer a bold choice for any occasion from casual to classy. I love all the different options because it allows you to feel comfortable out of your own box. The furry trend has my heart! You can wear fur for so many different occasions and complete your outfit in doing so. This jacket is probably the softest thing I’ve ever worn.

Don’t forget to take time out of all the hustle of Christmas and remember why we truly celebrate. Merry Christmas my friends.

For unto you is born this day in the City of David a Savior Who Is Christ the Lord

Luke 2:11
