Help, i don't know how?

Wednesday, December 14, 2016

emoticon I really hate feeling, let alone thinking this, instead of looking at all the outside lights and decorations and saying that they are so I’ll just shake my head. I’m thinking how does any of these lights, decorations, and Christmas trees represent the reason for the season, the glorified birth of the Son of God, Jesus Christ? I think that is why haven’t pushed for all our Christmas decorations, ornaments, and Christmas tree to be brought out? I guess that is why posted it here on my Sparkpage and in a blog for all my friends to answer my questions. I’m being very honest and sincere, I’m asking for your help. I’ll be praying tonight asking Heavenly Father’s and Lord Jesus’s help also. God Bless You All !

    I read a blog last year where this woman said that she put up a tree, but didn't decorate it, and it felt good for her. She sort of needed to take a year off from all of the fancy stuff. Perhaps doing that might be nice.

    The lights represent that Jesus is light of the world for Christians. In Heaven, the Bible says that Jesus will be our light, we will have an endless day. And the greenery represents life, since it's usually evergreens, and even in the winter evergreens stay alive.

    I hope things have improved for your family!

    Maybe just put up some lights but not allot like allot of people do and to remember what Christmas is really about and that is the birth of our Savior.

    Isn't Jesus light in the darkness? So are Christmas lights. You can look at it that way. I'm sorry you are going through pain and sadness. Many prayers your way! :)

    Thank you everyone for your comments and prayers. I guess because of all the sadness and pain me an my family are going through right now didn't see how the lights and decorations can be positive. I definitely didn't see how the lights represented the birth of Our Savior, Jesus Christ. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    There isn't, not really. But for me, each light helps me to see the joy in the season, and its representation of the birth of Christ.

    Well, there are some religious decorations so that's a plus. I like seeing angels and crosses all lit up in a yard. There are many ways to glorify god and celebrate the real reason for the season. Sure, some decorations are more silly and fun, but those decorations don't erase or replace the true meaning. The lights may seem all about glitz and glam but they can lift spirits, bring smiles to faces, and allow someone to forget about their worries for a few minutes. It is amazing that a few bright lights can do that. Decorating a tree can bring a family together and that's also a positive. I think there can be a balance between celebrating the birth if Christ and enjoying Christmas lights. :)
