Message from Rev. Lea
The following excerpt from the Baby Jesus Journal is a
thought-provoking illustration of how Jesus should
always be our main focus and concern.
“Having Baby Jesus with me for a couple of days made
me realize how much more emphasis we place on
‘Santa,’ ‘The Elf of the Shelf’, shopping, parties and
food than we do on Jesus. Even though Jesus is the
main center of Christmas for our family, we do spend
more time on these other things than we do worshiping
Jesus.

When we had Baby Jesus with the kids, I definitely
thought about him every second of the day – I was so
afraid the kids would lose him that I was constantly
saying ‘Where is Baby Jesus?’, ‘Do you have Baby
Jesus?’, ‘Don’t lose Baby Jesus’. I did not think about
the other minor things surrounding Christmas! My
main purpose was keeping baby Jesus in my sight! I
realized I should do this every day! What a
revelation!!!”

Santa came!!! I was worried that I might be on
the naughty list....mom has been upset with me
for having a few accidents inside. Guess Santa
gives second chances...kinda like the way mom
talks about God's forgiveness. I hope all my
friends had a Merry Christmas! I appreciate all
the goodies and new toys! Woof! Ellie
