Do you Believe?
If you believe in Santa, he transforms our doubts and shortcomings into the miracle of hope. He gives us the strength to believe. Once a year, Santa slips secretly into and out of our lives again, leaving behind everything we need to make a difference in this world
BELIEVING MEANS: That if you are blessed to spend Christmas in the presence or at least the hearts of loved ones, these are the magic times and the wonder and the memories will keep giving back to you year after year.
BELIEVING MEANS: That if you believe in the power of faith, family and good friends, you have all the magic and wonder and gifts you’ll ever need, and you can keep more cookies and carrots for yourself, too.
Santa is the spirit of Christmas, of giving and sharing, goodwill and excitement
In just a few days Christmas will arrive and families will gather to open their gifts.
BELIEVING MEANS: God has a Christmas gift for you—wrapped not in bright paper and with fancy ribbon—but in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger. Without the birth of Jesus there would be No Christmas carols. No Project Angel Tree. No children singing Away in the Manger. No Christmas Eve services for there would be no Christmas to celebrate
If you believe in Jesus , He can transform your doubts and shortcomings into the miracle of hope. He gives us the strength to believe. Once a year, the Christ Child slips secretly into our lives again, leaving behind everything we need to make a difference in this world
When I was growing up I think the mystery and magic of Christmas was entwined in the belief of both Santa and the birth of Jesus. I can remember how special it was to look at the manger where the little babe was lying and would imagine the angels singing Glory to God in the Highest. I also remember wanting something so much and believing that Santa would provide it.
When we consider all the wonderful and delightful traditions and customs that have developed all due to the Birth of One Little Child it is a miracle and a hope come true.
