God is always with us

The Christmas season is one of the most celebrated times of the year. Immediately after Thanksgiving, the commercialism of Christmas is advertised. Jesus is the real meaning of Christmas and he is the reason for the season. This is a time when we celebrate Christ our Savior's birth.

Everyone loves gifts, especially during the Christmas season. Many people will go into debt buying gifts to give to their kids, families and friends. Often times in the hype of gift giving we forget the real purpose of this holiday. We forget that this is a day we have set aside to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, God's gift to the world.

Loving God means loving those we see each day
