True meaning of Christmas

Just as I'm thinking I've done quite a good job decorating my house with Christmas festiveness, Colton was able to put me in my place and remind me of what is truly important. Today, I hear Colton announce as he walks through the house, "We need to show the true meaning of Christmas." Curious, I look to see what he is up to. I see him setting the picture of Jesus, which is normally on his shelf in his room, right in the middle of the family room fireplace display (between the Frosty and Santa, humbling them as well as me). He says, "There. That's the true meaning of Christmas." So true true.

I of course had to take a picture.

and of course Rylan wanted a picture too.

Now, in my defense: My living room is completely devoted to the spiritual side of Christmas with the Nativity display, and Christ pictures (no worldly icons in that room), but Colton spends little time in there. The family room is more of the Winter Wonderland theme with lots of Frosties and Santa. So, I understand his sweet, precious heart.

"Women of God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind. There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity. "
