2 Peas Wednesday Blogger Challenge - Favorite Holidays

Join us today/Wed if you blog. Challenge: The Holidays are coming. Blog about the things about the holidays you are looking forward to.... no matter what they are!

There are 2 holidays I really focus on with my family. The 1st is Christmas. I believe this is the most important holiday of all because it focuses on the birth of Christ. I can't even begin to imagine where we would all be without this event occurring. God allowed Christ to be born so that He could eventually die in order for everyone's sins to be forgiven. Imaging the love that God has for all of us for Him to have made all this possible. I would hate to see the world if this had not have taken place. Sometimes I have a hard time comprehending the amount of love that He has for me. This then, brings me to my second favorite holiday to celebrate, Easter. Easter is the celebration of the death and resurrection of Jesus so that we can all be forgiven. Imagine living a life solely for the purpose of saving others. That is what God sent His Son to do so that all of us could be forgiven of our sins and develop a more intimate relationship with both the Father and the Son. Because of these holidays I know I am blessed and forgiven and I know that I will have a place in Heaven because I choose to follow Christ in all I do. I look forwards each year to both so that I can celebrate the love I have for Christ and so that I can use these to teach my girls about Christ.

Awesome post. Many people forget that Jesus is the reason for the season. Not Santa! Dana

I agree. Around here, Easter is often overlooked. But it's our favorite holiday because of how foundational it is to our faith. Great post! :-) Janet
