Have a Merry Christmas Day!

Christmas is celebrated all over the world on December 25. Some historians say it is to signify the birth of Jesus Christ. Other historians say it is to signify the day how an ordinary man became Father Christmas.

Father Christmas is based on a real person, St. Nicholas, which explains his other name ‘Santa Claus’ which comes from the Dutch ‘Sinterklaas’. Nicholas was a Christian leader from Myra (in modern-day Turkey) in the 4th century AD. He was very shy, and wanted to give money to poor people without them knowing about it. It is said that one day, he climbed the roof of a house and dropped a purse of money down the chimney. It landed in the stocking which a girl had put to dry by the fire! This may explain the belief that Father Christmas comes down the chimney and places gifts in children’s stockings.

Many people do hope for more than presents at Christmas. We want to somehow return to a time in our childhood (or some other good time in the past), when life was simpler and made more sense, before the troubles of adult life arrived. We feel sure that behind all the fun and decorations, there must somehow be a message, something more, some key to life, hope and happiness.

So can we (you all and I) look beyond the way Christmas is celebrated today, and find any real meaning, any message for our lives today?

Many have tried to find real meaning for their lives, in an hundred different ways.
Others have given up, and said, “There is no answer, there is no meaning.”

But for our lives to have meaning and purpose, we must find answers.
A solution is needed that can answer each of my problems, Something that really works.

1. I need something that can help me handle life better
2. I need a new power to stop doing things I know are bad for me and others
3. I need strength to act in a new way
4. I need some way of dealing with my past – the hurtful things that have happened to me, and the things I realise now I did wrong, that have hurt me or others
5. I need real answers to the purpose of life – why I am here, and what is my life for
6. I need something for that space in my life that nothing else has filled
7. I need friendship in my life – a trustworthy relationship so that I am never alone
8. I need a way of taking important life decisions
9. I need something to take away fear – fear of the past, the future, bad luck, ancestors, spirits, death – all those things we try to forget

Then we can find such a solution together. We can find the missing piece of the jigsaw that makes everything else fit together. So I ask you to consider the solution. It may not seem believable to you at first. You may feel that it cannot be for you.

And I discover:

It is this:

* There is a creator God – He made everything for a purpose
* He is a real person, not just sort of power or force in the world
* It is possible to find Him and know Him
* He has made a way for this to happen
* He sent Jesus to live on the earth, to show us what God is like
* He loves you more than you can imagine
* He has a plan for your own life

So Love yourself for who you are. Nobody is to tell you to change yourself. You are UNIQUE yourself so be yourself. Do forget the PAST and look forward to the PRESENT and FUTURE then you will discover the TRUE YOU as you move on without looking at the PAST. I believe that you will do the same. Let the things of the PAST go, WELCOME the things of the PRESENT to come to your way and WAIT for the things of the FUTURE to come to your way.

Lastly, tomorrow is Christmas Eve, December 24. It is time for you to celebrate the day. Go out and have fun with your friends as well as exchange gifts. Be BIG HEARTED on that day and you will RECEIVE many goodwills when it comes along you. God is watching you with his blessings.

I m gonna to have fun tomorrow! I can’t wait to see the anticipating fun tomorrow night! I will be back after a REAL GOOD FUN of Celebrating Xmas Day ^^

So to all Bloggers and Readers, I wish you a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS DAY and enjoy your night ^^
