Blessed Christmas 2007 !

Ya I know I know... it is a little late ....

Well, Christmas is traditionally celebrated for 12 days (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twelve_Days_of_Christmas), so I guess it is not too late to wish everyone:

BLESSED CHRISTMAS !

Well, this year I didn't have the time to set up my Christmas tree mainly for the same reason that I set it up very late on Christmas Eve last year ( see http://ypwong.blogspot.com/2006/12/blessed-and-merry-christmas.html.
). However, the real reason I did not manage to set it up at all was because I spent the few days before Christmas and also Christmas Day at my brother's place at Damansara Perdana and my sister's place at Bandar Utama.

Well, Christmas is not about Christmas tree and all the 'celebration', Christmas is not Christmas if it is Christmas in our hearts, the tree and the rest are just the 'fun' factors.

Though there were no Christmas tree at home, this year Christmas was a meaningful one, one which I enjoyed very much. It is a good thing that I escaped from the Siberia Cyberia at Cyberjaya and came to PJ, I attended the Christmas celebration at my younger sister's church on Saturday evening (Dec 22, 2007); on Christmas morning itself, I attended the celebration at Damansara Utama Methodist Church (DUMC), which my the other sister attends. It is especially meaningful that my mother went along with us too, though she attended the Chinese session while me and my sister attended the English session.

Christmas is always a time to refresh ourselves, to reflect on the year about to end and re-evaluate our life goals. Most importantly, it is a celebration of the Greatest Gift of Christ that life can be lived to the fullness for each one of us.

My main Christmas prayers and my prayers through all the days of the years is for my mother and all my family members to know personally and to have a wonderful relationship with this Child that was born on Christmas Day. This has always been my main prayers for more than half my life so far and always will be my main prayers.

To all my friends, my Christmas prayers are also for you, and also for myself that all of us may live our lives to the fullness, wonderfully and meaningfully,

There is this one particularly Christmas Song which I like the most every year, I managed to find one video of it at YouTube, here it is below, enjoy!



Here are the lyrics:

Christmas isn’t Christmas ‘til it’s happens in your heart
Somewhere, deep inside you, is where Christmas really starts
So, give your heart to Jesus, you’ll discover when you do
That’s it Christmas, really Christmas for you.

Jesus brings warmth like a winter fire, a light like a candle’s glow
He’s waiting now to come inside, like He did so long ago
Jesus brings gifts of truth and life and makes them bloom and grow
So welcome Him with a song of joy, and when He comes you’ll know….

That Christmas isn’t Christmas ‘til it’s happens in your heart
Somewhere, deep inside you, is where Christmas really starts
So, give your heart to Jesus, you’ll discover when you do
That’s it Christmas, really Christmas for you.

There are a few problems with having a christmas tree in an apartment, the main problem that I am aware of is the lack of space to keep the tree for 11 months of the year when it is not up. Not including the ornaments.

So what we did, we bought one of those ready made wreaths. Tie a string and hang it on the main door.

That is christmas decor for you. For the rest of the year, it is kept out of sight and takes out very little space. Not to mention, setting it up is just about hanging the thing on the door frame. No need for ornaments.

Actually most Christmas tree is foldable, mine is a medium-size one (>4 feet tall I think). To store it, it is split into 3 pieces and the storage box is only about 1x1x4 feet.
