Good morning world, so on the days after Christmas are you still conflicted over who came to town and who came to visit. In that inquiry as my blog is taking the rest of the December days out, I thought in your continuing confusion and doubt, I would do a little pretend review
for you that way we can think about what we have just talked about too.
So let’s Pretend that it is still Christmas Eve. Yes let’s again try to recapture the feeling of Christmas the tree, as we clearly remember what Christmas day really means.
Yes let’s retrace our feelings of fantasy. And let’s pretend it is Christmas morning and Santa Claus with his clause has once more come to town for you and me.
Naturally as we are once again tricking ourselves and trying to make things what we want them to be, when that is not the way they are at all, some of us are really having a hard time turning loose of the imaginary of Christmas hanging around the red and green balls.
So as we pretend that it is still Christmas eve that will not be hard at all, as most of us still have our house decorations up for all to see, including the twinkling lights on the Christmas tree that are still glistening. Therefore you, and I know that turning loose of the dream can be really hard as make believe can easily crash into reality.
Subsequently, let's again pretend it is true. Yes it is once again Christmas eve and Christmas day for me and you.
In that dreamy statement while retracing your steps Santa has come to town and you know that is true, since if you close your eyes you can still see the presents lying all around underneath the Christmas tree by the chimneys flue.
In that discovery we love that again in that familiar every year scene, there are still excited children running everywhere wildly, happily, carefree, and merrily. And that there are not really angry children searching and screaming for more presents, that are not happy with the broken, forgotten, discarded toys lying around carelessly.
To me it is also tremendously fun that our out of town family has again come knocking at my door, and they have not left as in the days before. Yes in my mind my boys are still waking up giving me hugs, kisses and presents. Merrily that is the way I want things to be, not as they are, with my non resident children missing, and gone.
Accordingly with all being right in the world in Christmas’ second arrival I know you will agree with me that it is really Neat there is still great food cooking on the stove, and not the turkey skin or other things left undigested sneaking out our other disgusting holes.
I furthermore adore there are sweet cookies, cakes, with goodies baking behind the ovens door, and not the extra pounds that are now registering on the bathroom scales sitting on the floor residing on our thighs forevermore! Yes pretending Christmas is still here is so much more fun than facing the fact that it is over and done.
Of course, in pretending that we can put our life in rewind I also love that people are kinder then, than they are now. Yes indeed the entire world is happier than before, because it is still Christmas morning. Yes things in make believe are nicer than the real things of today when everybody is depressed and angrily moaning, since all of a sudden nothing can be returned at the stores.
Thankfully that additionally means around the world’s Christmas trees, the bombs won’t drop, and the guns are even stilled as people call a truce in middle of killing each other at will. Yes I would like to think that nobody is hurt on a silent night and a still Christmas morning.
Absolutely I am happier pretending that again Christmas morning is a morning without mourning.
I further like in my rewind of time found in my hiding mind, that Christmas dawning is a morning friend of mine, where everyone is happy as they are anticipating opening up their presents and the arrival of fun, with friends and family coming.... all because Santa Claus really did arrive late on the reindeer. Yes Santa Claus really did come to town all over again I hear.
Thus in Santa’s arriving everything is great again with the world, because everyone's excited in their merry whirl. Yes indeed this is another great morning dawning, because Santa Claus came to town and turned everyone’s frowns right side up into a smile, instead of upside down.
BUT WAIT WHO WAS IT THAT REALLY CAME TO TOWN??
And what is up with all of this PRETENDING?
Yes EVERYONE in that review we need to stop pretending that Santa is important to me and you. And we also need to stop and remember that in the month of December whether we are thinking clearly or pretending, CHRIST-mas is not about Santa Claus at all.
No, this was not Santa’s birthday and It is not important that Santa came to town. No it was NOT SANTA that turned our frowns around. This Holyday is not called SANTA-mas day. No this day is and was not about Santa Claus in anyway !
NO, IT WAS NOT SANTA COMING TO TOWN THAT WE CELEBRATE ,BECAUSE IT WAS AND IS JESUS COMING TO TOWN THAT MADE (AND STILL TO THIS DAY MAKES) EVERYTHING GREAT!
So let’s quit pretending that Santa means anything. Let’s also quit pretending that we can live in the past, because what is important is the time we have today. Therefore lets accept Jesus into our life so this day and every day we will be saved!
Your Prayer of Salvation
Dear Jesus, I know that I have done bad things in the past, and that I have done bad things today .Yes that makes me a sinner just like everyone else in the world with the things I am doing and saying.
And because I am a sinner I know I need a Savior....
that is why I've come to you today, as I am silently praying, because I want to be, and I need to be saved.
In saying that I believe that you were born on Christmas Day. I believe that you lived a perfect life. And I believe that you died on the Cross to save me from all of my sins .
In believing you are the Son of God I am asking for your forgiveness for all my sins that I know, and those I do not know that I have committed, including the ones that I will continue to wallow in, as I claim in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit that I am now going to heaven.
Yes I claim in my new faith this very minute that I am saved, because you died for me on the Cross, and in your arising on the third day, you now live within me!
In this prayer I believe that I am born again into heavens light, and as I am asking you to change my life you are my Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen
Absolutley I pray that you have accepted Jesus Christ as your eternal guiding light, and your Savior today. I know I may never meet you here on earth as we are roaming, but if you truly prayed your prayer, to Jesus requesting forgiveness of your sins, and asking for your salvation you are right now this second saved. And I will see you when we go Away back home!
