Christmas in May?

The following is from my friend over on SIMPLYMYSWANK

I don’t know why God speaks to me the way he does.  His timing is his own.  It’s May and I couldn’t stop thinking about Christmas.  I think it is probably because of the undo pressure my extended family puts on how we are raising our children. (I have so much more to say about that).

Ever since my husband and I became Christians my life has changed in so many ways.  I look objectively at life and the things we do.  I have a very passionate feel about our Christian holidays.  I just don’t like the hiccups that are distracting us away from what we should be celebrating.  My distain is growing and growing as my love for the Lord is getting stronger and stronger.  So here is what I wrote yesterday.

How dare we as Christians to allow the wonder and majesty of our precious and powerful Savior to be overshadowed by the “wonder of Santa?”
