The "Holiday Season" is upon us. What's that mean for a follower of Christ? How does the way we celebrate the holidays differ from the way society as a whole celebrates? Those are a couple of good questions for us to spend some time thinking about.
Are we more thankful to God than others? Do we praise God for loving us so much that he decided to come live among us as one of us?
May this "Holiday Season" be a season of "Holy Days" during which we don't forget why we have the holidays in the first place.
One thing we can surely be thankful for is that (after more than nine months) we now have new floors in our gym and school buildings after the devastating flood we experienced last March.
