Dream i had a dream Joseph i Don t understand it but i think is was about a birthday Celebration for our son. 1 think that was what it was ail about. But i m not really sure. The people had been preparing for it for weeks. They had decorated their Homes bought new clothes. They d gone Ping Many times bought Many gifts some of them quite elaborate expensive. It was Peculiar though because the presents were not for our son. They wrapped them up in Beautiful paper tied them with Lovely bows stacked them under a free. Yes Joseph a tree right there in their Homes they brought in a tree in my dream the tree was All decorated with pretty lights. The branches were full of shiny Halls sparkling ornaments. I think i saw a figure on top of the tree an Angel. 1 think it was anyway it looked How an Angel might look. Of it was Beautiful everyone was laughing Happy. They were All excited about the gifts. They gave the gifts to each other Joseph not to our son. In fact 1 think that some of the people did t even know our son. They never mentioned his name. Does t it seem Odd for to go through All that trouble to celebrate someone s birthday if they Don t even know him i had the strangest feeling that if our son had gone to this Celebration he would have been intruding everything was so Beautiful Joseph everyone so full of cheer but it made me want to cry. How sad for Jesus our son not to be wanted or even mentioned at his own birthday Celebration to so glad it was a dream Joseph. How ten Ible if it had been real. This week As we celebrate Christmas remember that Jesus is the reason for the season if is his birthday we celebrate when you gather on Christmas morning or whenever you open your gifts take a quiet moment to thank god our father for the greatest gift of All the gift of his Only son Jesus Christ our Savior our King remember to give Jesus your heart some of your time on Christmas Day.
