"and that you may remember and do all My commandments, and be holy for your God."
Numbers 15:40Today I thought I'd share with you some traditions my family has, especially with all the upcoming holidays. Daddy and Mamma have always tried to teach us to remember what Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Resurrection Sunday are all about. Unfortunately in this day and age people think that Thanksgiving is a time to enjoy a huge meal, Christmas is the day you receive presents, and Resurrection Sunday is a time to search for easter eggs. While each of these "traditions" are not bad in themselves we believe it's important to remember why they are here in the first place.

The whole things with traditions is to remember that Jesus is to be the center of everything! This is hard to remember especially with the business of the season but it's so important. The Devil desperately wants us to forget the Scriptural meanings of all these (that's why he uses such tools as Santa, Easter Bunny, and Turkeys) but we must not allow it. We, the next generation, must strive to never forget the God-whom we serve and the many traditions that were made to ultimately honor and glorify Him!
May you be blessed this Christmas season!
Learning to delight in Jesus,
