winter whites and christmas

Merry Christmas Eve!! I’m so excited that Christmas is FINALLY (almost) here! I will say, this year it came faster than ever, but I still can’t wait to unplug and spend these next few days with family. In case you’re doing some online shopping today, I’m sharing one of my favorite winter trends with you: winter whites. But also wanted to do a short post on what Christmas really means to me.

Over the past month or two, I’ve shared lots of gift guides, holiday dresses, and Christmas desserts with you – all of which are wonderful things! But, I feel like I would be doing you a disservice if I shared all of those “Christmas-y” things with you, but failed to ever talk about the reason behind all of this. All of the celebrating, the parties, the gift wrap, and the shopping. This season is all for our Savior, who came as a baby thousands of years ago, so that we might one day have a relationship with Him by faith, through grace.

Paul Tripp says it like this: “Jesus willingly entered the darkness so that we could live in the light of his presence forever.”

So today, on Christmas eve, let’s celebrate and deeply enjoy time with family and presents and yummy food. But may that joy for all of us roll up to a higher and greater joy. “Look at your tree and remember another tree – one not decorated with shining ornaments, but stained with the blood of the Son of God. As you celebrate, remember that the pathway to your celebration was the death of the One you celebrate, and be thankful.”

Love came down and rescued each one of us! I pray you all abound in that truth today and are filled with joy this Christmas. Love and peace to you all!
