It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas or is it?
Before we even finish saying “thank you” and eating the last of the turkey and pumpkin pie, the race to December 25th is on. Black Friday doesn’t even wait until Friday anymore! The madness begins on Thanksgiving Day! Now don’t get me wrong, I like to give gifts at Christmas just as much as the next person, but traffic lines that wrap around the mall and being knocked down at stores so that people can get to those limited quantities of sale items is not what Christmas time means to me.
To me, Christmas is a time to stop and realize that Jesus, God the Son, left the splendor of Heaven and was born as a baby on this sinful earth, lived a poor man’s life and died on an old rugged cross, all so that I might be saved! Truly salvation is the most perfect gift and everything else just seems to pale in comparison.
But with that said, I will give gifts to family and friends to show them how much I care about them this Christmas season. And I will bake lots and lots of Java Sweets gourmet cookies and ship them all over the United States to your family and friends as you try to show how much you care about your loved ones. So here’s wishing you a very, merry Christmas from Java Sweets!
