Christmas Through the Eyes of a Child

My grandchildren always seem to amaze me. I love their innocence and seeing that light come on. My 8 year old grandson, 7 year old grand daughter, and 5 year old grand daughter has a great love for the Lord. They are amazing with their desire to learn more about Him. Our 10 year old grandson, wants to have a better understanding and often asks questions. It's awesome.

So lately, the 7 year old often reminds us, and occasionally the 8 year old and 5 year old do to what Christmas is really all about. "Omah, we really need to remember that Christmas isn't all about decorations and presents, even though it's fun to get presents; but it's about the birth of Christ!" I love it. She gets it.

Since coming back to the Lord almost 3 years ago, I started seeing decorations in a whole new view and try to impress that upon the children so they too can really enjoy the beauty. This year, I don't know how to explain it exactly, but the decorations all around just hold a deeper beauty/meaning. Instead of the usual, oh wow, that's pretty; oh that's neat; hmmm, that is an idea; it's Happy Birthday Jesus, this is all for you. This is all to show our love and gratitude for you. May the lights shine brightly and the festive feel for your birthday spread great joy!".

Yes, Christmas takes on a whole new beautiful, wonderful feel, when you see it through a child's eyes. I'm so grateful and thankful for such loving, sweet, wonderful grand children. They are the highlight of our lives. May all the children of the world, find peace and happiness. May they be showered with love as our Saviour and Lord has shined His great love on us. Thank you Father for giving us such loving children and grand children. You have blessed us beyond imagination. You are good all the time!

May you all experience the great blessings of Christmas through our Lord. May you be filled with His love now and always. Blessed be the Name of the Lord. Blessed be Your name, Jesus. Blessed be the Name of the Lord. Blessed be Your glorious Name!

Yes, it is wonderful when we can view the world through the eyes of a child. We celebrate our children's birthdays in a special way, and how much more we should celebrate the greatest birthday of all, when our Lord and Savior was born! Thank you for your beautiful post!

Hi Sweet Friend,

This is a beautiful post. I know exactly what you mean. My littlest grandson who will be 4 yrs. old in April came to visit a few days ago. My daughter said tell Nana what Christmas is, he said "It's when Jesus Christ was born". That's all that needed to be said out of that little babes mouth. What innocence, what pureness, what absolute joy.

I love you dear friend. May this Christmas season bring you more delight, love and joy through the wonderful view from your grandchildren's eyes. May they soak Him up even more and fill you abundantly so through their love for Him.

Peace, Blessings & {{{Hugs}}},
