Christmas Scenery

Happy December 3rd!

Omly 22 days left until Christmas. One of my favorite things about Christmas are the scents. To me, those are pine tree and gingerbread. My recommended activity: Bake gingerbread ornaments(not for eating) or cookies and smell or taste one of the prime scents of Christmas.

Hey everybuddy! So, Christmas season rolls around. What do you see? Santa, Santa, Santa. Santa and his elves. Santa and his reindeer. Santa by himself. Snowmen, trees, and holly. As Christians, our minds sometimes get polluted and influenced by these sights. What is our true Christmas Scenery? A shabby stable. A manger. A baby. 3 Wise men, a shepherd. And a husband and wife gazing in wonder and hapiness at their new born son. Angels. THAT'S our Christmas scenery. You think, what do I do now? My mind's been polluted. As someone wise once said, you can't stop birds from leaving droppings on your head- you can't control that. But you can keep them from nesting on your head. This means bad thoughts will be around all the time- but you don't have to think about them. "Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things." Phillipians 4:8
So act on it! Sing the Jesus Carol instead of the Santa Song. Don't put wooden reindeer and a sleigh in your yard. Put a wooden stable along with some characters (wink). There you have it. There's your Christmas decorations. There's your scene.
