Awww, it’ my favorite time of the year, Christmas, the time I celebrate my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Although I have distaste for the commercialism of Christmas I love everything else about it. The aroma of pumpkin pie and cinnamon coming from the kitchen and the warm crackle of a beautiful fire burning. The sounds of family and friends sharing the current year’s challenges while anticipating the coming year’s triumphs. Lyrics of well known Christmas carols like Oh Holy Night, Joy to the World and Silent Night. Many people debate the fact that Christ was not born on December 25 and don’t know why Christians celebrate this day every year. Although, it’s not known the exact date that Christ was born, it’s the day that we choose to celebrate Him and His gift to us. Jesus made the ultimate sacrifice when he laid down His life for us and because He did we have Eternal Hope. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever shall believe in Him, shall not perish, but have everlasting life.”
It’s inevitable that along with the fellowshipping and celebrating that there will be gifts. This year I have researched some practical stocking stuffers for your friends and loved ones and in this article we are focusing on my top 3 picks for the Home:
