We want to wish all our customers and everyone else who reads this a very Merry Christmas! And it is worth celebrating. Not because of presents, or lights, or decorations, though those are all great. Not even because of family and friends and good times spent together, those those are very important too. No, Christmas is worth celebrating because of Jesus, Whose birth we are remembering.
And His birthday really wouldn't be worth celebrating except for the reason He came - His death. That may sound totally backwards. For the rest of us, death is the end of life. But the whole reason Jesus, Who was truly God, also became truly man was specifically to die. But His death wasn't the end of His life, because He was resurrected three days later. In case you think I am mixing up Christmas and Easter, I'm not. Both are part of the same life, and one without the other is meaningless. The birth of Christ without the death of Christ is just another human birth. The death of Christ without the birth of Christ makes His sacrifice useless because He wouldn't really be human.
And so it is through His birth, His life and His death that we have the opportunity to be right with God. And really, that is far more important than horses, trees, saddles, or anything else we could post on here.

He really is, not just the reason for the season, but the reason for our lives.
