But before we do that from near of afar, I want to clear something up for you.
Saying that as you know lately I have been making an interesting distinction between CHRIS-tmas and CHRIST-mas, including the way we are saying things.
That's why, as I have been writing things that way, a few of you have asked me....
if saying Merry Christmas is still okay too.
And the answer is....OF COURSE IT IS.
Because Christmas will always be apart of CHRIST-mas for you and me EVERYDAY for the same reasons!
So how you say Merry Christmas..... has nothing to do with what you Believe, or this Holy Season!
And, calling that word distinction to your attention..... I was only trying to get everybody to focus on THE TRUE GIFT OF CHRISTMAS...... FOUND IN JESUS CHRIST!
But bottom line..... Merry Christmas and or Merry CHRIST-mas will always be Right.
However if you want to see a look of SURPRISE on a passer byer face, as you also OPEN UP THEIR EYES TO JESUS CHRIST.... when they say Merry Christmas to you...
You say Merry CHRIST-mas BACK TO THEM too
Then just look at the Light of Surprise.... that comes to their eyes....as they are thinking WHAT DID THEY JUST SAY?
Yes that is a great way of sharing Jesus CHRIST with a stranger, friend ,or family member during these Holy Days!
So, now that I have cleared up that word distinction , lets talk some more about the GIFT OF CHRIST-mas.
Because I have a great Christmas Gift for you as CHRIST-mas is coming from near and far!
But first to find the Gift that came from afar....
LETS START TO FOLLOW THE STAR!
No, I am not talking about following the dumb stars on the movie screen.
Or following the stupid want to be stars on TV.
Or following the struggling stars who do the singing.
Or having anything to do with HUMANS who have NOTHING to do with STARS!
So Lets Follow the Real STAR OF HEAVEN EVERYWHERE WE GO.
Therefore as we approach another holiday that’s also a HOLY day, while we celebrate the “BIRTH OF LOVE” each in our own way, some of us will see following the Star of the World call Jesus is always easy!
That means, even in the dark of night or the storm that's in sight..... there will be no fear as we love dreaming and hearing the rain dropping.
THE STAR OF HEAVEN WHO CREATED HEAVENLY PARADISE.....Also known as JESUS CHRIST!
Therefore in each sweet season as we are following The Star, knowing the STAR OF THE WORLD IS JESUS CHRIST…..we should be looking Up, Around ,and looking forward to what life and love are bringing our way.
