Rant of My Heart


This (click here) link  then click the Go Back button to come back Sparks the Rant of my Heart!
As you watch the link, and I hope you do, please understand that I'm not against Santa.  
It's just that I'm FOR JESUS!
I think if I had to do it over again, I'd leave Santa out of Christmas all together for my kids.
It's a little late now that they're grown & having kids of their own!  I dont want to take any Fun out of Christmas, 
I just want to emphasize what's Real.
And what's True.
The kids will be as good as they can be, because they're taught to be.
And they'll be as excited as they can be for Christmas morning
because of all the presents they will get
Because it's Christmas!!!
Amen.

We'll read the REAL Christmas Story
and not bother with the one that's not.

We'll decorate with all the pretty, shiny, excitement of Christmas, 

 


and do everything that makes Christmas Fun: 
the shopping, the wrapping, the singing,
center left, Light blue shirt, looking Straight at me!!
the cooking, the baking.
 
 
 
Remembering the poor, to give and pray for them!
 

 
We'll do Special Christmas Eve Traditions

 
And then we'll Gather and Eat and do

Presents!!!
Because it's Christmas!!!
Because Christmas isn't the big guy in a red suit,
It's The Baby in a Manger!!!
I know lots of 'super good' Christians who can do both, but for me?
Well there's a few things in my life I wish I could go back and change, and leaving Santa out of Christmas would be one of them!!

I promise I wont spoil it for the parents in my life who do Santa for their children.  Why would I want to do that? 
I, for one, kinda 'Like' getting presents at Christmas, just like anyone else.
 And I promise I will emphasize Christmas, for all the fun that it is,
for all the children in my life!


 
For All of us, of All ages.
And For The Baby in the manger that said, "Let the little children come to Me". 
And is the Giver of every good and perfect Gift!
