There has always been something special about Christmas.
As a little girl, I remember counting down the days until my little pigtails, pink PJs, and bright blue eyes would run to see how many presents I had under the tree. The excitement didn’t end with the presents, though. After opening gifts, my family would spend hours playing, eating, and making memories.
The presents made me feel loved, but the special moments came afterward when I spent time with my family. I secretly wished the day would never end; it was magical. My parents were faithful to read the real Christmas story, emphasizing the true meaning of Christmas. They would always gently remind us that it’s only because of Jesus that we have hope and a purpose.
