Project - true meaning



WOW! This is amazing! I love the bold colors, and esp. the break in the vellum where you put the title. Very cool. <img border='0' src='/images/icons/cool.gif'>

I love the layout. The items that I particularly like
are: the break up the journaling with the title and the offset of the brads holding the vellum. TFS.

simple schemes

ETA….journaling reads:
This isn’t the greatest picture and it was the only one I took that night while we were shopping, a totally random picture to take…but it begged to be included in my scrapbook.

Christmas and the whole month of December is such a busy time. And it can be hard to know what the season is all about. Sometimes we get caught up in the decorations, parties, and shopping and forget that although there is nothing wrong with celebrating it is not he true meaning of the holiday.

This is the holiday we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world. He came to the earth under extremely humble circumstances. Throughout His life eh taught and served the people of the world. To celebrate frivolously and with large sums of money and loud celebrations detracts from the sacredness of this event.

So in light of what the world has made of it I have come to the conclusion that Christmas is this….
…A time to celebrate the birth of our Savior by serving others by giving of ourselves as He did.
…A time to be with family to give gifts as a remembrance of the gifts given to Him.
…And simply put, Christmas is LOVE!

As a new mom I worry about teaching my children all that they need to know. How do I help them understand things that even sometimes I don’t think I understand? An abstract concept such as the meaning behind the this festive holiday is hard to explain to a small child, when it is so easy to get caught up in the toys and the lights and all the excitement. I hope that through my example I can teach Xander (and any future children) about the true meaning of Christmas.
