Is it just me or does it seem like our sacred holidays have been reduced to cliched, cheesy clip art celebrations? Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny have replaced Christ in our holiest of holidays. Don’t get me wrong, I love the silly stuff just as much as anyone. I just am glad that my family takes special care to focus in on the real reason for the celebrations. It isn’t any more work and it makes the holidays so much more meaningful.
I feel like we must have done something right with the kiddos when in the last few years they have taken the lead on this. Watching them find ways to put the ‘holy’ in our holidays is a great joy and blessing. I encourage you to find your own special touches to give a deeper meaning to these sacred days.
Remember, faith works!
