5 days to Christmas...

Christmas in the air. At least, I seem to be imagining it there. Recalling the days of Christmas in Lincoln, NE makes me miss this holiday season. By now, the radios will be constantly playing those Christmas carols, and streets will one way or another be decorated with Christmas ornaments and so on, and the weather, oh, how I miss the snow and coziness of wearing winter apparels...

Malaysia seems to celebrate Christmas differently. The only signs we can see are the ones in the malls, because Christmas ornaments makes good decorations for the malls. But of course, you won't see too much of Jesus, but plenty of the good old jolly St Nick, because, who gets offended by Santa Claus.

The good thing here is that churches here are staying true to the message of Christmas. Christmas is not about the season of giving and presents, and being jolly and of good cheer. Christmas is about Christ. It is about Him leaving a place of glory to come to earth to die for the sins and mankind. My prayer for Christmas this year is that Christians would live a life that would reflect that message; a life that is grateful to what he has done, and a life that is eager for His second coming.

Jesus, thank you for your love to me.

Merry Christmas y'all...
