Something to Celebrate

.

I have been thinking of the yearly celebrations of christmas and halloween.  And i have decided that i don’t want to honor them.  They are not biblical celebrations and they are full of paganism and worldly hooey.

I do like to bring more light and comfort into the house for the darker and colder season.  I like to decorate with different colours in different seasons.  And i want to look for God’s Grace in every day.
I don’t want to celebrate out of thoughtless habit.  Just because the world says it is the time to do so and that this is the way to do it.  I don’t need to honor all of the beliefs that are intertwined through history in these celebrations.
I can bring in light, colour, music, and decorations that speak of and celebrate a life lived everyday in the Lord, instead these once-a-year conglomerations of religion, paganism, consumerism, and greed.  
I am free to make choices.  And i think it’s time that God be the one i honor and celebrate, in relating with Him and others, every one of the days i am given. Not the pre-packaged, pre-digested, pre-prepared, yearly, staged, fake gold and sold, glittered-over “stuff” posing as okay and good and harmless.  
I want the real thing.
I want every new day and a new way.
His way.
