Today is very special because of the reason for this joyous day, whether or not our Messiah Jesus was born on this day or not is irrelevant. What counts is that we remember that the greatest gift ever given to mankind is the gift of grace and eternal life through his son Jesus.
"For G-D so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life." John 3:16
On another note, I have another person who is very special to me who happens to have a birthday today.
This person is my wonderful and loving father. Yes, My dad was born on Christmas day eighty years ago. Words could never express how much I love this thoughtful, caring, dedidated, funny, and always there for me no matter what, man. He taught me to love, appreciate and always be thankful for even the smallest of blessings. Mr. C is one of the biggest lights of my life.
Today, He is far, and I could not be with him or the rest of my loved ones in Chicago, but I do want to dedicate a part of my Christmas post to him. I love you immensly papi!!!!
