Hi everyone! I’m so sorry I missed days 5 and 6 of Twelve Days of Christmas! I’ve been pretty busy. My brother broke his leg (both his tibia and his fibula), so please pray that there won’t be any complications with the healing and that it will be speedy. 🙂 Thank you!!
Things I Wanna Do Different This Christmas
Christmas hasn’t always been a big celebration of Jesus’ birth to me. I’ve always just acknowledged the giving, spending, and receiving part of Christmas.
This Christmas I want to focus more on what Christmas REALLY means to me. Whenever I think of Christmas, I think ‘humility’. How humble Jesus was to come down to earth as a baby, to be born in a stable, in a trough, in swaddling bands, surrounded by animals, and the first people to see him were Shepherds. Because God loves even the Shepherds.
I’ve never thought of it this way before, and it just popped into my mind now, but maybe the Magi coming after the Shepherds represents how when Jesus comes again he will be like a majestic King. Anyway, that was side track. 😉
I also want to spend more time with family. Last year we opened presents and that was the end of it… Phones, internet, ipads, ipads, just shouldn’t be a part of our Christmas celebrations (unless of course you’re taking a video or a picture haha)
So here is a question for you; what comes into your mind when you think of Jesus’ birth? And what does Christmas mean to you?
My Christmas Playlist
I love this song so much! And if it looks like the girl (Teddy aka her real name, Bridgit Mendler) is just mimicking, it’s because this is a tv show. But she actually is singing it. It’s just she’s mimicking her own voice… haha that was not needed was it….*hides
And if you guys haven’t watched this tv show, you HAVE to. It is SO funny! It’s my all time favorite. #charlieissocute
Aussie Jingle Bells will give you an idea of Christmas here in Australia. 😉
I love Home Free!
Whew! That was a lot of videos! Glad that’s over. 😛 Haha jk.
Well, Merry Christmas!!
Oh and take a picture of your presents under the tree, or wherever they are. 😉
