Dear Santa

Hi guys

I hear yesterday’s post was too short to be counted as an official blog post…well, (Diche) *sticking out my tongue* I said I was doing a 30 day blog post challenge not a 30 day LONG blog post challenge. So it’s still very valid. Hehehehe…

So today I had a flashback. I had a Christmas-as-a-little-girl-moment. I remembered what Christmas was like growing up. I still remember my dad coming home with hampers and of course we always went after the sweets and the chocolates. Then   December  24th was santa day. We a went to illupeju supermarket back then to catch a glimpse of this robust,  jolly man in a red suit with lots of goodies in a bag.

It’s funny that santa has survived so many generations and we have somehow made Christmas about him. I’m not here to burst anyone’s bubble in fact I’m all for santa even if it’s just for the Christmas presents 😉

What I’m against is the fact that we are slowly easing Christ Out of Christmas. Amazingly I was just thinking about it today, even his style of operation is opposite of the bible’s.

Santa only gives you gifts if you have been good. If by any chance you end up on the naughty List

  it’s the end of presents

. So you have to deserve it. If not you won’t like what you will get if anything

Thank God our God is not some old man in a red santa suit. He is a God who while we were yet sinners, died for us. He knows we can never stay off the naughty list so we still get gifts all year round irrespective. 

With Him we don’t have to be perfect. He is our tsikenu (our righteousness) 
Christmas is so much much better because I know it’s not about Santa, it’s about Jesus.

He’s the reason for the season.

But while we are still playing pretend Christmas is about santa, then dear santa this is my list….

But hey, we all know…my help comes from the Lord…so I’m in absolute faith for my Last Minute Miracles and many more testimonies…and any other thing you can throw in Lord 🙂

Okay guys good night
I’m sooooo sleepy…
It’s day 22

  1. I am soooo with ur sister, that yesterday’s post *gulp* ahn ahn, you now made me go and write long essay about what kind of person i think I am, but since u have been steady, we will close our pretty eyes and let that one slide. He sure is the reason for the season, yes our Savior was born and he was born just for me, that gift is worth all of the Christmases in this life time and then some and all the other gifts pale compared to this but feel free to gift me ur nice red heels or that top I have been eyeing for a bit. Thank u. Merry Christmas mama, kisses.

  2. Thanks PM for post day 22…we are almost there! Am so glad that the reason we celebrate Christmas is not the man in a red suits…he gives us not because of any effort on our part. Merry Christmas to you Maman and all the ladies of JUGN.
