Thank you cordykitten for my teddy - he is lovely sitting on my profile, now ... and thank you pfeifferpack for your lovely e-card ... really special.
Both jaded_jamie and pfeifferpack have talked about their belief in Christnas ... so just wanted to say a couple of things myself.
Most of you know my faith is 100% who and what I am.
Christmas is the birth of Jesus ...................no, it probably isn't the correct day - but my argument has always been that I ould prefer to have got the date wrong, than not to have celebrated Jesus' birth.
Jesus is the Son of God - born of a human mother, Mary. As son of God, He was perfect - and the only reason He was born, was so that He could die ... Then he came back to life 3 days later.
For me, and anyone who wants, in believing those simple facts, can ask for the special relationship with God, that I have ...
"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whosoever believes in Him, should have eternal life"
John 3 v 16
So, remember to wish Jesus a Happy Birthday tomorrow (or today, for some of you!)
However, whether you believe in God, or not, I hope that you have a super time with family and friends ... because it is days of fun that you remember when times are tough.
Happy Christmas, to one and all.
Love and *hugs*
