For the Love of Christmas

Christmas means different things to various people.

For some it’s about Santa, gifts, and a hearty meal with loved ones.

Others celebrate the birth of the Messiah, King of Kings, Son of God––Jesus.

I love to work with acrostics. They allow my mind to work in creative ways and often encourage me to use a dictionary!

This year, I decided to use the game to define Christmas for me…

For the Love of Christmas

C  – Christ’s birth, my redeemer

H – Hope for those who are less fortunate

R – Reading the book of Luke every day in December

I – Imparting the love of God to others

S – Singing songs of joy, peace, and about my savior

T – Time relaxing and reflecting on the past, present, and future

M – Making memories with family––especially my grandchildren

A – Advocating peace, joy, and love to friends and community

S – Supporting those who grieve this time of year


This Christmas season, I wish you happiness, health, joy, peace, prosperity, and most of all hope.

H – Hope though faith in Christ

O – Overabundant joy and love, even in hard times

P – Peace of mind, knowing you are cherished and protected

E – Elohim, to know the “mighty one” who goes before you, treasures you, and offers abundant forgiveness, grace, and mercy


From our home to yours,

Merry Christmas!
