Merry Christmas everybody! While it may not be Christmas officially yet, I am sure feeling the excitement of the season now.

I've released today my newest wallpaper, in celebration of the upcoming Christmas holiday, entitled, "Illuminate", making it my sixteenth (and final one) for the year and my 116th overall.

Not only am I feeling the excitement of the holidays, I am reminded of what this Christmas season is about. "We are told to let our light shine...", said Moody. Actually, in today's modern world, we seldom hear this, if even at all. But back when D.L. Moody was out proclaiming the gospel, it was taught that we are to be a light in this world. But what does that mean? Now a days, it's more like, "Shine the light on me!" or "Look at me!" When did this attitude become the norm?

One definition of illumination means to enlighten, as with knowledge. We are to be a light that people see, but the type that reveals to others who God is, and what He did for us by our actions. And that all started when Christ came to earth in the form of a baby. Again, the goal is to be a light for others, not shine the light on ourselves.

The true Christmas spirit of the season is of love and of giving. God gave us His Son, the ultimate gift, because He loved us so much. Let's shine a light on that gift so that others may see and find the real meaning of this season called Christmas.
