I Believe In Christ

I've been thinking of writing this blog for a few days now and I'm still not exactly sure what I want to write.

I love Christmas. I love spending time with family, I love the happy spirit, I love all the things that everyone else loves about Christmas. Sometimes though I get a little sick of how commercial things can get and how easy it is to forget exactly what Christmas is about. Christ.

There is a Christmas song by Relient K (weird I know) that I have been replaying over and over in my car this year, because to me, it get's across the message of what this time of year is really about. I would suggest you take a listen, it's a good one. For those not able to listen, I've also posted the lyrics:

"And with this Christmas wish is missed the point I could convey, If only I could find the words to say to let you know how much you've touched my life. Because here is where you're finding me, in the exact same place as New Year's eve, and from a lack of my persistency we're less than half as close as I want to be

And the first time that you opened your eyes did you realize that you would be my Savior?

And the first breath that left your lips did you know that it would change this world forever?

And so this Christmas I'll compare the things I felt in prior years. To what this midnight made so clear that you have come to meet me here. To look back and think that this baby would one day save me, in the hope that what you did that you were born so I might really live.

And I, I celebrate the day that you were born to die, so I could one day pray for you to save my life."

I am so grateful for my Savior and all he has sacrificed for me. I am grateful for the Christmas season to remind me of his birth and his life. I'm grateful for the reminder to try and be more Christ like, to serve others, love others, and bring peace into others lives. I hope we can all remember what Christmas is really about and remember our Savior. Remember that he was born, lived, and died for us, so we could have eternal happiness, be saved and one day return to our Father in Heaven. I believe in Jesus Christ, he is my friend, brother, and savior and I love him with all my heart. I can never express how truly grateful I am for him and the life he has given me.

Merry Christmas everyone!
