Something to Party About

'Tis the Season of gathering together with friends and family for Holiday Parties.  I had lunch with a friend the other day and we spent time catching up and talking about how much we enjoy holiday parties.  Parties at work for corporate events, tacky Christmas sweater parties, white elephant exchanges and small family and friend parties.  It seems like everyone makes time for a party this time of year.  But what are we celebrating?  Are we celebrating the coming of winter? The two week break from school?  The 3 day break from work? The end of frantic shopping? Or are we celebrating what Christmas is really about?  The birth of Christ.  I’m writing this in hopes that as you attend the remaining Christmas parties this year that we all remember what we’re really celebrating.  Jesus was born as our savior.  He came to seek and save us. In Luke 15, Jesus tells the Parables of the lost sheep, coin and son.  In all stories they were lost and then found.  Once found there was a big party. Christians were once lost and now are found. There was a time I was very disconnected from God.  He was an after thought, never at the front of my mind.  I didn’t know what was missing until I discovered His grace and great love.  I was once lost and now am found.  Now that’s something to party about :)

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas spent with the ones you love.  It’s time to celebrate how much God loves you.

This is a cool video on how the first Christmas may have been if it were in today's time.  Check it out.

Hey part of procrastinating from everything I need to be doing I thought I'd share this will all of the instagram addicts out there.  If you're anything like me you take pictures of anything and everything and then post it...haha Well check this out.... 

This site allows you to turn your instagram photos into little magnets.  So cool.  I just ordered a sheet for myself :)  They'd make nice gifts (Christmas is right around the corner!) or super fun decorations!  I plan on covering my fridge and dishwasher hahah  For my running friends, you can turn all of your race start and finish line photos into fun keepsakes.
