The Secret to a Perfect Christmas ⋆ A Little R & R

A Little R & R

Why do we celebrate Christmas?

If all it is to us is a time to celebrate, be with family, eat good food and buy our kids the big toys they’ve wanted all year, we’ve turned it into a celebration of our own hedonistic desires. Christmas was never meant to be consumed by us – but to celebrate HIM!

If it becomes more about our own selfish appetites than about a celebration of one of the two greatest events of history, we’ve not only missed the point, we’ve defiled what is holy.

We must….must, must, must make Him the central figure of all we do.

Yes! Have fun, make a nice meal, enjoy the deserts, cookies and candy, give your children gifts, watch the romantic movies, and listen to the glorious music…there is nothing wrong in that. But, in all of that celebration, make sure that Jesus is still the center of it all.


My real name is Debra (Debbie Sue). Sarah is a nickname given to me in high school. My husband has always called me that so here in Florida It's all I am known by. I was born and raised in Illinois. My son and I moved to Colorado in 1982. I taught school for 17 years. Then I ran a homeschooling/preschool/daycare until 2006 when I moved to Florida after my son, Bobby died suddenly. He was almost 26. Danny and I live and work at a state park here. I miss the mountains and climate of Colorado. I miss snow and the four seasons. I miss Bobby.
