Nativity Scene at Maranatha Baptist Church, Lilburn, Georgia, December 2012
Christmas and our celebration of Jesus’ birth is upon us once more as we close out yet another great year! There is always so much for which to be thankful, particularly the coming of Jesus, and his love for us that is so great and boundless that he suffered and died for us to save us from our own sinfulness. Though we will always be human – and have all of the mistakes, unworthiness, and errors that come with it – we must always do our best to be more like Jesus. We must act in ways that are forgiving, understanding, sensitive, compassionate, and giving to others and each other.

While most people throughout the world are Christians, celebrating Christmas and recognizing Jesus as our wonderful savior, there are many who celebrate other religious events and holidays. For them, I also wish a wonderful religious celebration and/or holiday.

So, as I have been blogging on WordPress, now, for the past one year, I would like to take this opportunity to say, “Happy Birthday, Jesus!”, and reflect with this posting that I am a thankful lover of Jesus. Though my words and actions as a Roman Catholic and Christian will always pale miserably and indescribably in comparison to our Savior, I always try to do my best to have my words and actions reflect His love.
