“Momma? Christmas is Jesus’s birthday, right?” She asks as we open the box that holds the new pillow, a gift from DaySpring to our family.
She knows the answer. I have given the same answer over and over.
She jumps up and starts searching our Christmas tree for the reminder and proclaims, “We need more Jesus on our tree!”
She’s right. We always need more of Him.
We light Advent candles and hide baby Jesus.
Then we seek Him.
My kids search, we offer clues. We pepper our dinner time with reminders of the manger and questions about the foretelling.
It’s hard, redeeming Christmas. It’s difficult to find baby Jesus in Christmas these days. This season has become more about stuff and such and He is crowded out of His own day with each passing year.
I’m on the hunt for an advent conspiracy. I want to take back Christmas from our mixed up world who celebrates a day without The Celebrated One. I hope you’ll join me.
