A very special friend gave me two beautiful crosses for Christmas. Each is covered in “jewels.”

Seeing and holding them reminded me of how Christmas is about more than the manger. It’s the beginning of our redemption. Behind the “sparkle” is the sacrifice. Christ’s sacrifice for us. On the cross.

It is—and will always be—the best gift we can ever receive.

Merry Christmas, everyone!

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:11 KJV
