The Stable Cat's Christmas and a GIVEAWAY

Teaching our kids what Christmas is all about is a hard job at this age. Commercialism is rampant. As soon as the Halloween is over, Christmas related products are already popping out in the stores. We tell our kids that we are a "one holiday at a time" family. It is easy to get carried away in the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season. While all the kids know the story of the birth of our Savior, as parents how do we spread the message of Christmas.

Last, 2015 I had shared 15 Charities That Help Support Children .I think that it is important to share and bless others, most especially to unfortunate kids.  I had also shared ,To the Momma Who Can't Afford Christmas,  sometimes it is not only when we "have" that we tend to forget about giving but also when we faced scarcity. The Stable Cat's Christmas is a really good reminder that just when you think you do not have anything to offer, you will be surprised that you can actually give something to honor Jesus Christ.

Here's our 8 year old, enjoying the book.


 I aksed her how did she liked the book, she answered: Mommy, its a two thumbs up. And she continued to tell me the whole story and how much she likes how the cat helped Jesus.

  1. I talk with my boys about baby Jesus' birth, we light Advent candles, have an Advent calendar, have Nativity sets, and sing Christmas hymns

  2. A few years ago, an older gentleman stopped me during the Christmas season and thanked me for smiling and saying hello. That moment has been a fond memory of how we are to be lights in a dark world. We are to show the message of Jesus in our daily walk. Thanks.
