To kick myself in gear and kick the holidays off right

Ever since the virus hit, I've had trouble being a consistent blogger.

Anyone out there know what I mean?

But, today is the day. The day that I kick off the 25 days till Christmas by kicking myself in the backside and kicking a giveaway your way.

I want you all to get into the spirit of Christmas.

Not the worldly-I've-got-to-get-all-the-latest-for-those-on-my-list spirit, I'm talking about the true spirit of Christmas.

So during this week I want you to leave me your comments telling me what Christmas means to you. In return, I'll close the comments Friday, December 5 at 5 pm and choose a random winner who will receive a copy of The Christmas Shoes by Donna VanLiere.

I chose this book because it reflects the true meaning of giving being more important than receiving on Christmas. It is important because it reflects the giving nature of God when He gave us Jesus Christ who ultimately died on the cross so that all of our sins would be forgiven.

So, get your thinking caps on...go to the comment section and tell me how you feel. You don't have to be a blogger to participate, just be sure and leave me a way to contact you should you win. Only one entry per person.

Now, let the season officially begin.

What a great idea you have there girl! Christmas is a time for me to say to a dark world that I have a Savior in Jesus and I am celebrating the fact that He would come to earth for me to have a way to Him.

I just saw your comment on Kelly's blog and wanted to let you know that I prayed for you to "overflow with hope" during the waiting. I prayed this for myself, as well, since I also took a negative pregnancy test today. (Trying for our second for a year now)

I pray that we will both make extra sweet memories with our three year old sons during this time of waiting and that we would come to know God's grace more intimately than we ever have before. Merry Christmas!

Great idea! I think Christmas is a wonderful time to celebrate Jesus. It seems as if people are more open to hearing about his life, death & resurrection during the holidays.

I also love celebrating my friends and family. I love to think of a little gift or need for each person. Whether it is something I've heard them mention throughout the year or something that makes me think of them when I see it... The gift isn't the focus, but the expression that I care for them and thought of them. That is my favorite part of Christmas!!
