Day 5 – Remember the Reason for the Season (12 Days of Encouragement of the Chef’s Family)

Tags: ,

Christmas time is busy, not only for our chefs in the restaurant, but for us at home and work.

As the calendar starts to fill up, it’s hard to not get sucked up into all the commercialism and craziness of the season!12 days of encouragement for the chefs family

For our family, Christmas is not about presents and Santa.  It’s not about Christmas lights and candy canes.  While we do celebrate these things with our children, I never want them (or us) to lose sight of the real reason for the Christmas season – the birth of God’s Son, Jesus Christ.

As the girls and I shop for gifts for others, I love talking with them about the greatest gift of all, one we did not deserve nor could ever earn.  Every day, I’m humbled that God would chose to send His Son to be the Savior of a world, full of sinners like me.  (You can read more about this over here.)

John 3:16 – “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”

As you continue to celebrate this Christmas season, I hope it will be filled with laughter, family and friends . . . and in the midst of it all, stillness to reflect on the amazing gift of God’s Son, Jesus Christ!
