A New Christmas Tradition

I just finished reading an article in the November/December issue of Today's Christian Woman. The article is entitled "12 Ways to Make Your Holidays Merry and Meaningful" and was written by Jeanne Winters. They are all quite good and would be wonderful ways to make this holiday season special. However, one of them stood out more than the others. It was #8...Happy Birthday, Jesus. She suggests offering Jesus a symbolic gift in honor of his birthday. This can be done individually or as a family. You are to give him an area of your life that you want to change, then physically wrap a box to represent it. Wow! That just blew me away. What a simple yet powerful way to draw closer to Him. There will definitely be a special gift under our tree this year...my present to Jesus.
