Christmas Hangups

Our children at church presented this great Christmas musical the weekend. They were so cute and did a fantastic job.

The story takes place just before Christmas, and the tree ornaments have been awakened from their yearly hibernation by the movement of the storage boxes. It's time! As they begin to prepare for another season on the family Christmas tree, they are greeted by a rather strange and “un-Christmassy” ornament: A hula-girl. The Star, the Snowman, the Angel and others don't understand what she has to do with Christmas and give her a rather cool reception.

However, a significant figure from the mantelpiece shows up to explain to all of them what Christmas is about and how they each have significance in God's amazing plan of redemption through His Son.

++++++

Now.......Webster defines "hangups" as (1) a psychological or emotional difficulty or (2) an inhibition or obstacle to smooth progress or development.

Don't let some hangups with the hustle, bustle, and craziness of the season cause you to lose your JOY during Christmas. Or more importantly don't lose sight of the fact that NO ONE is insignificant to Jesus!

  2. Hi Dear Friend,

    You're so sweet. Loved your post and I bet the Christmas musical was precious.

    Thank you for the many comments you have left on my blog throughout this year. It really meant a lot to me. You have changed the look of your blog since I've been here last. It's been a while I know. I'm just getting around this week to catch up. It's been so long due to ongoing illnesses.

    Merry Christmas!

    Blessings & Love you,

  4. One of my favorite Christmas hang-ups is that I HAVE to have spiced apple cider. All the others, the ones that are job-robbers? I tossed 'em along with all the other things that needed tossing, like hair rollers and girdles.

    Bring on the joy!

    Hugs,
    Kathleen
