How grateful we all can choose to be this day. Another Christmas has arrived. We live in a country where we are free to openly celebrate its true and original meaning of peace and joy. Hopefully this day finds people feeling the spirit of Christmas and sharing it with family and friends. We may be tired from the busy bustle of preparations such as decorating, gift shopping and special food, but it should be a satisfied feeling that we did it to make the season special for those around us. While we might be glad that the excitement is over, is the true intent also forgotten when we toss the tree out the door or hoist it into the attic? For believers, what is the part that we need to keep with us throughout the coming year? Certainly it's not Santa, but is it just Jesus in the manger?
