What is Christmas all about? Family traditions and religion


Read ‘The birth of Jesus was like this’ here

What is Christmas all about?

My family traditions and
religion during Christmas

I have a confession to make. I used to dread the ‘Holy Season.’
Not any more. I tell you what happened.

I was born in Australia and grew up in Europe. My dad was brought up as a Catholic and my Mum grew up a Protestant.

In Holland, we celebrated ‘Sinterklaas’ on the 5th of December.

Sinterklaas still is, all these years later, represented by an old man with a long white beard and a large red cloak. During my childhood, he arrived by boat and after this, he drove through our village streets on his white horse accompanied by his helpers, ‘de Zwarte pieten.’

Good children were rewarded with treats and gifts. Naughty children risked being put in ‘the bag’ by Santa’s helpers and taken back to Spain. Sinterklaas’ helpers looked black because of the soot they collected as they navigated chimneys with their load of gifts, to deliver goodies to the well-behaved children.

Thanks, Mum!

Scary stuff. My Mum didn’t like her children to be intimidated by imaginary strangers. Therefore she told us, kids, that Sinterklaas was fake and she would make sure that we received as many presents as the other children did.

Lotsa brownie points for my Mum there. She lost a fair amount of leverage throughout the year, I’m sure; not being able to threaten us with Zwarte Piet’s ‘bag.’ But whatever leverage she lost, she more than regained in respect for being a truthful parent who treated her children with thoughtful kindness.

I’m pretty sure that my siblings and I were the only children in our school who didn’t believe in Sinterklaas.

On the fifth of December we received lots of gifts and on the 25th of December, we celebrated Jesus’ birthday with a real Christmas tree with real candles. The tree was placed next to a nativity scene and all kinds of yummy foods that my Mum prepared according to Dutch tradition.

Thanks, Mum, for your honesty and truthfulness.  

Santa Claus

In my early twenties, I moved back to my country of birth, Australia, where I married an Englishman. He had never heard of Sinterklaas but couldn’t wait to introduce me to Santa Claus, also known as Father Christmas in his home country.

I’ve since discovered that both Sinterklaas and Santa Claus grew out of traditions surrounding the historical Saint Nicholas (a fourth-century Greek bishop and gift-giver of Myra). Different cultures, different names but the principles are the same. Lotsa gifts for good kids and naughty children… beware!

As a child, I cherished the celebrations surrounding Sinterklaas and Christmas. That whole end-of-year season was filled with fun and holiness, as far as I was concerned.

As a Mum with little children, I didn’t enjoy Christmas so much. I remember the Christmas period and weeks leading up to it as frantic and filled with too much cleaning, too much cooking, too many presents, and way too large a credit card bill!

Holy Season?

I started to dread the ‘Holy Season.’ 

After my health crumbled I wasn’t able to get out and buy a Christmas tree and presents etc and, after discussion, my teenage children and I agreed to stop celebrating Christmas.

This did not go down well with family. We were disowned by some and ignored by others.

Served us right. Because when in Rome, do as the Romans do.

By now I had started to read the Bible in earnest and couldn’t find Christmas in the Bible. Sure I found Jesus’ birth recorded but no date, nor an invite to celebrate. Does this matter at all?

In addition, I found Jesus’ Father rebuking people having parties around a tree, eating pork and such delicacies. He called them a stench up his nose.

In the context of various cultures celebrating the birth of Jesus the best we know how to… I don’t think it matters that much what day Jesus was born or how we celebrate His birth.

In the context of how Jesus said He would like to be remembered. It matters… to me. He did not ask us to remember the day he was born by giving gifts to each other. But at the Passover, he asked us to break bread and drink wine in remembrance of Him.

This do in remembrance of me

Before he was crucified Jesus took the cup and gave thanks. He also took bread, blessed it, and brake it, and gave unto his disciples, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me. In the same way, he took the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

What is Christmas all about? And he took the bread... do this to remember me

What is Christmas all about? And he took the bread… do this to remember me

Did Jesus ask us to remember Him only at the weekly Holy Communion, as instituted by churches, or at the yearly Feast of the Passover or Easter or did He ask us to remember Him every time we eat bread and drink wine?

I gave it some thought and cannot think of any good reason why I wouldn’t want to remember Jesus several times a day in the way that He asked me to.

I leave it up to you to decide for yourself how often you would like to remember Jesus.

And that is exactly the point of this post.

Honour everyone’s traditions

With this post, I want to honour everyone’s traditions whatever they may be according to their culture and religion.

Who am I to tell anyone how to celebrate Christmas or any other religious feast?

I grew up celebrating Sinterklaas and Christmas. In my twenties, I married into a different culture which saw me adopt the Santa Claus tradition. After this, my girls and I for various reasons weren’t able to celebrate Christmas the way we knew how to, which was a mix of Dutch, English, Australian and religious celebrations and traditions.

After much reflection and a decade of inactivity in that regard, we now invite friends and family over to hang out during the holidays, and we remember Jesus how He told us that He would like to be remembered.

Part of my family rejected me when for various reasons I decided that my children and I wouldn’t celebrate Christmas any longer in the traditional way. The traditional way in my case had been excessive and decadent. And I was, and still am very happy to leave this self-indulgent behaviour behind.

When in Rome do as the Romans do? I stopped mixing with Romans because I couldn’t keep up with the requirements.

Honour and remember Jesus

Above all, more than honouring my family, friends or tradition I want to honour my Saviour and love of my life, Jesus. I want to do what He asked me to do in remembrance of Him.

Therefore, at lunch, I proposed a toast and said,

This toast is to our guest of honour, Yeshua. Even though no-one knows the date of his birth, today His name and birthday are celebrated all over the world.

Yeshua (meaning Saviour), also known as Jesus asked us to remember every time we break bread and drink wine, that His body was broken and His blood was shed on our behalf.

It is because of Yeshua’s sacrifice that we may live. He shows us the way.

Praise The Lord

Amen

On Christmas especially, I remember why His body was broken and how His blood was shed to atone for our sins.

Thank you, Jesus.

He was once an employee at the Vatican Secret Archives (yes, the Vatican Archives). He knows a thing or two about how to pull together professionals and convincing them to share all their latest strategies and secrets. Brian gathered over 30 experts for his latest online event, The Indie Novelist Summit, which kicks off October 17-21.

FREE Indie Writer's Bundle and FREE access to Incie Novelist Summit at https://mimi--authorstech.thrivecart.com/premium-pass-regular/5ba65f88cac59/

Step-By-Step Process Guided by Word-Class Experts

All these experts won’t be sharing what worked last year, or what they used when they first started, or what they think might work… they’re sharing their tried and tested strategies for what’s working for them, right now!

Because this Summit has been set out as a course; by listening to the speakers you’ll be taken step-by-step through the process of what’s involved in writing your very first novel.

Brian says that we should think of the Indie Novelist Summit as a journey. ‘We are going to take you from before you even have an idea to your first fiction book in a matter of weeks. All with the help of the world’s greatest experts. We’ve got you covered on every aspect of writing, publishing and marketing your novel. Plus, each step is taught by those who are the undisputed masters at their game. It’s like all the greatest courses have just merged into one.’

24 ENCOURAGING SCRIPTURE VERSES: HE HEALS THE BROKEN-HEARTED


Leave a comment

24 Encouraging Scripture Verses; HE heals the broken-hearted


24 Encouraging Scripture Verses; HE heals the broken-hearted

The Scripture Verses from last week (1) and this week (2) are from Psalm 121.

There is a personal story connected with this song/Psalm. And it goes like this:

Once upon a time I was lucky to own a dog named Song. She was gorgeous in personality as well as looks and we were all head over heels with Song. She was a Mastiff/Dane cross, with a beautiful cream colour coat and at 65 kilos she was a force to be reckoned with. Not that she ever exercised her authority. The most she would ever do was get up on her feet and gently place herself between the aggressor and the other person. That is all she ever really needed to do.

Song made us all feel safe from predators and aggressive people. When we slept, I knew that she had our back. When we, as three girls, travelled unknown towns with Song, no one ever approached us. Her imposing looks, kept us safe from predators.  I did not realise how much I counted on her presence till she died at the ripe old (dog) age of 14. I was absolutely devastated. Now what? I missed my lovely friend as well as our protector.

As usual, when I’m distressed, I opened up the Bible for comfort. The Bible fell open at Psalm 121 and I read,

I will lift up my eyes

I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.
He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.
The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
 The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth,
and even for evermore.
Psalm 121

My Help Comes From The Lord

Instantly my mind was at peace and I realised that it was not my dog Song that had kept my family safe all these years. It was our Father in Heaven that looked over us. Sure, no doubt, he uses guardian angels, and Song may well have been one of those. But bottom line is, that it is God who takes care of our well being and keeps us safe. It is not man nor animal. Now we feel inspired to sing Psalm 121 whenever we go out in the car, knowing that protection comes from above.

My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of Heaven and Earth. Psalm 121:2

My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of Heaven and Earth. Psalm 121:2

We’re bound to be disappointed when we count on people to help us and keep us from harm. The Lord however, keeps all his promises and has never disappointed me.

24 Encouraging Scripture Verses for when we face BIG trouble with our health.

The Healing Power of Prayer; 24 encouraging Scripture verses for people with major illness


The Healing Power of Prayer; 24 encouraging Scripture verses for people with major illness  

A friend of mine, let’s call her Isabella, was recently diagnosed with a potentially life-threatening condition. After weeks of anxiety, tests and an operation, Isabella will now undergo radiation treatment.

It is an awful thing to be diagnosed with a major illness. And often we are at a loss as on how to proceed. The doctors say one thing. Friends, family, and neighbours all want to have their say also and the whole process of testing and treating can be a confusing and challenging time.

Our Lives are in God’s Hands

As friends, we may not always know what to do and how to help. All I really want to do  is hold Isabella in a tight hug and tell her that it will be OK. I want to tell her that our lives are in God’s hands and that he has good plans for her.

I think about my friend often and as usual, when I’m distressed about something, I find comfort in God’s Word. Prayer is known to reduce stress and inflammation in the body.

There is Healing Power in God’s Holy Word

People who pray are found to heal faster and have more peace of mind than people who don’t pray. And the same goes for people who are prayed for, regardless if they know that they are prayed for or not. Mmmm, interesting, isn’t it?

Does the strength of the healing power depend on the faith of the person praying? Sometimes, yes. But not always. 

There is healing power in God’s Holy Word which is as true today as it was thousands of years ago. We can claim the promises from God’s Holy Word as our own. It is as easy as that.

24 ENCOURAGING SCRIPTURE VERSES FOR PEOPLE WITH MAJOR ILLNESS

24 ENCOURAGING SCRIPTURE VERSES FOR PEOPLE WITH MAJOR ILLNESS

Isabella told me the other day that 25 radiation treatments have been scheduled ‘as a precaution.’ I found 25 Scripture verses to encourage my friend and others on a similar journey. One for each day of treatment.
The first Scripture Verse is below and the others will follow to help and encourage anyone needing comfort and encouragement during medical treatment of any kind.

The Lord Will Keep You

You can right-click your mouse on the Scripture Verses to ‘save image as’ to your computer and use them as a screensaver.

The Lord will keep you from all harm.. Psalm 121:7

The Lord will keep you from all harm.. Psalm 121:7

May the Lord hold you close, Isabella. And may he comfort you and others who are on a similar journey, and carry you through this period of therapy.

Much love to you my dear friend. I’m looking forward to our next gettogether.

How The Mystic Entrepreneur (Or Anybody Else) May Escape The Deadly Grip Of Fear: And Do Something Glorious


NEW BOOK available from Amazon

How The Mystic Entrepreneur (Or Anybody Else) May Escape The Deadly Grip Of Fear: And Do Something Glorious

by Gordon Boyd

BOOK DESCRIPTION

The book is a joy to read. The author really has heart for his readers and understands the ins and outs of how fear affects our lives in such a negative way. He gives many tips and hints on how to face your fears and start loving yourself. (Amazon Review)

How The Mystic Entrepreneur (Or Anybody Else) May Escape The Deadly Grip Of Fear: And Do Something Glorious

How The Mystic Entrepreneur (Or Anybody Else) May Escape The Deadly Grip Of Fear: And Do Something Glorious by Gordon Boyd

 

GORDON 1

This is a great read for self-help lovers. The author truly cares for his reader and reading the book feels like drinking from a fountain of wisdom of a caring family member. (Amazon Review)

Gordon understands…He has amassed an arsenal of information, including tips, tricks and methods, both general and specific, to help you eliminate fear…This book is amazing. The heart and soul of this author simply jumps off the page. I read a lot of books but rarely do I feel the real heart of the author through their writing. Gordon Boyd has taken on a project of immense scope. He holds nothing back……Gordon shares his wealth of knowledge……Highly recommended for any entrepreneur who is spiritually inclined. (International multiple best selling author – Sarah Saint Laurent)

If ever there were an authority on how to handle overcoming fear, it is definitely Gordon the Growth Guy! This book is ideal for anyone who wants to stop being a dabbler and start being a doer! Gordon takes the reader on an educational and very well-researched journey through mysticism, science, business etiquette, and productivity. This is a must-read for not only budding entrepreneurs, but anyone ready to kick fear to the curb once and for all! (Qat Wanders – International multiple best-selling author)

This wonderful book overflows with kindness, deep insight into our spirituality, and wisdom…..you think yourself in the company of a great thinker, a seer, who sits at your table to grace you with his knowledge and wisdom. The words are so kind and full of love, the manner so unassuming and loving that I felt what I rarely feel: peace…..I recommend this read with all my heart. (International multiple best selling author – A.G. Mogan)

How The Mystic Entrepreneur (Or Anybody Else) May Escape The Deadly Grip of Fear examines the fear that holds people back in life from its physical, psychological, spiritual, and social perspectives. It then provides a wide array of approaches, techniques, and understandings proven to provide escape allowing anyone to finally go ahead and do something glorious with their life!

Warning: you can use the information in this book to actually change your life. But, don’t worry (that wouldn’t do for this book.) Even though change can be scary, lots of folks say they feel wonderful about accomplishing things they never dreamed they could. Why not “give it a go” and see what glorious things you can do when you give fear “the slip?”

Warning: This book is highly opinionated regarding science, matters of faith, philosophy, social convention and belief, and just about everything else. But don’t worry – it aims to accept and value you just as you are and for who you are with no regard for agreement on any issue. If, though, you are unable to learn from and value ideas “from different places,” well, the author just respects you enough to warn you so you don’t waste any of your life’s precious hours combing through thoughts that don’t speak to you. He really does value and believe in you. He would also get a huge “kick” in thinking that some thought or idea from the book served you in your life’s journey and all the adventures it affords.

Free Bonuses: The book comes with a powerful fear busting hypnotic audio meditation and a fear busting progress chart inspired by the potent principles of cognitive behavioral therapy.

AUTHOR BIO

Since his wife left (she probably was right about him having too many books) Gordon has fared the best he could, knocking around the old house, teaching a course on therapeutic trance for professionals, tending to some growing things (raspberry bushes, tomato plants, valerian, an apple tree, etc.) and staring at the computer screen waiting for literary inspiration from one of his various muses. Principle among them is his calico cat “Kara” with whom he is collaborating to develop a web-cast “The Holistic Growth Club For Entrepreneurs.” Kara is the namesake of Gordon’s childhood friend. To this day, some people insist she was “imaginary.” Without Kara – the sole feminine principle around – chaos and testosterone would undoubtably run amuck.

He’s worn a number of “hats” including those of a pastor, college professor, psychotherapist, and Detroit City (off of Cass Avenue) security agent. His favorite “hat” is his friendship with a few close personal and lots of wonderful Facebook friends. If you see him hiking, reading, learning about herbs and natural healing, or experimenting in the kitchen, he’ll probably have a far away look on his face as he loves going into trance. His grade school teachers chided him for being a “day dreamer” so he decided to do it for a living and get paid teaching others how to do it.

And now a word from Kara: “Gordon may be an acquired taste but he feeds me, lets me out during the day, and pets me often. He spends lots of time writing at the computer but I don’t mind. I give him many of “his” ideas and he includes them frequently. You can see why I’ve decided to keep him. Give the guy a chance – I think he’s got some great stuff to say….and please…for your own sake… don’t you dare think I’m kidding about this or making it up!”

THIS IS LOVE; ACCORDING TO HARRY AND MEGHAN. Is it the same for all of us?


 

1 John 4:12 Love explainedLove and cherish according to God’s holy law. What does this mean?

#royalwedding- Congratulations to the newlyweds! 

Thank you to Reverend Michael Curry for his wonderful sermon.

Love and cherish according to God’s Holy Law

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, (now the Duke and Duchess of Sussex) promised to love and cherish each other according to God’s holy law. What does this mean?

Did Harry and Meghan really say that?

Did Harry and Meghan really make this promise? Let’s have a look.

Prince Harry: I Harry, take you, Meghan, to be my wife, to have and to hold from, this day forward; for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part; according to God’s holy law. In the presence of God, I make this vow.

Meghan Markle: I Meghan, take you, Harry, to be my husband, to have and to hold, from this day forward; for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part; according to God’s holy law. In the presence of God, I make this vow.

Meghan and Harry promised to love and to cherish according to God’s holy law and not only that, but they also called God as their witness.

Meghan and Harry took time to adjust their vows the way they liked. How do we know this? We know this because when we compare the wedding transcript of Prince William and Kate to that of Prince Harry and Meghan we can see that the vows and wedding service aren’t the same but, as one would expect, have been individualised.

We know that the word ‘obey’ was taken out of the vows. Just as with Princess Diana’s wedding and just as with William and Kate’s wedding. All three of these royal ladies decided to equally love and cherish without the word ‘obey.’ What Meghan and Harry decided to do however is,

to love and to cherish,
till death us do part;
according to God’s holy law.

What does it mean to love and cherish according to God’s Holy Law?

Reverend Michael Curry quoted from Scriptures Deuteronomy and Leviticus as well as from Jesus during his passionate sermon,

you shall love the Lord your God, with all your heart,
all your soul, all your mind and all your strength.
This is the first and great commandment.
And the second is like it:
love your neighbour as yourself.

Jesus quoting from the Prophets and summing up the commandments

Reverend Michael Curry went on to explain that,

On these two, love of God and love of neighbour,
hang all the law. All the prophets. Everything that Moses wrote. Everything in the holy prophets, everything in the Scriptures. Everything that God has been trying to tell the world:
Love God. Love your neighbours.

Reverend Michael Curry then said, There’s power in love to show us the way to live.

The choir sang about it during the wedding ceremony as follows,

MOTET
If ye love me,
keep my commandments,
and I will pray the Father,
and he shall give you another comforter,
that he may ‘bide with you forever,
e’en the spirit of truth.
If ye love me, by Thomas Tallis (1505-85)

SQ this is love set SEE 24 72

To show that our love is genuine, we love and cherish according to the holy law and keep the commandments. Which commandments?
The Ten which you can read about here. The Ten Commandments (holy law) explain how to love God and how to love your neighbours,

music courtesy Art of Noise – Moments in Love

God spoke, and these were his words:

I am the LORD your God who brought you out of Egypt, where you were slaves.

I

Worship no god but me.

 II

“Do not make for yourselves images of anything in heaven or on earth or in the water under the earth.  Do not bow down to any idol or worship it, because I am the LORD your God and I tolerate no rivals. I bring punishment on those who hate me and on their descendants down to the third and fourth generation. But I show my love to thousands of generations+ of those who love me and obey my laws.

 III

“Do not use my name for evil purposes, for I, the LORD your God, will punish anyone who misuses my name.

 IV

“Observe the Sabbath and keep it holy.  You have six days in which to do your work, but the seventh day is a day of rest dedicated to me. On that day no one is to work—neither you, your children, your slaves, your animals, nor the foreigners who live in your country.  In six days I, the LORD, made the earth, the sky, the seas, and everything in them, but on the seventh day I rested. That is why I, the LORD, blessed the Sabbath and made it holy.

 V

“Respect your father and your mother, so that you may live a long time in the land that I am giving you.

 VI

“Do not commit murder.

 VII

“Do not commit adultery.

 VIII

“Do not steal.

 IX

“Do not accuse anyone falsely.

 X

“Do not desire another man’s house; do not desire his wife, his slaves, his cattle, his donkeys, or anything else that he owns.”

The Ten Commandments from the Good News Translation (GNT) Exodus 20:1-23

How to love according to the holy law, how to love God and how to love your neighbours is explained in the Ten commandments.
These are the words that the Creator of  heaven and earth wrote on a slab of stone with his own finger,

And he gave to Moses, when he had finished speaking with him on Mount Sinai, the two tablets of the testimony, tablets of stone, written with the finger of God.

English Standard Version Exodus 31:17-18 

The Lord gave me the two stone tablets, written by God’s finger…

Common English Bible (CEB) Deuteronomy 9:9-11

… There’s power in love to show us the way to live… The commandments show us how to love each other by the way we live.

The Bible is all about love. Scripture tells us again and again to love one and other. Reverend Michael Curry deliberately choose those specific Scripture verses in consultation with the newlyweds to bring home the power and beauty of true lovehighlighting how the commandments tie in with this.

What is love according to the Bible?

This is love,
that we walk after his commandments.
This is the commandment, that,
as ye have heard from the beginning,
ye should walk in it.

2 John 6

Scripture tells us that love is being good to each other according to the holy law; Worship Go(o)d and not (d)evil, no idolatry/images, don’t swear nor blasphemy, rest one day a week, honour your elders, don’t kill, don’t commit adultery, don’t steal, don’t lie, don’t covet.

According to Scripture the love of God is that we keep his commandments.

This is the love of God: we keep God’s commandments.
God’s commandments are not difficult.

1 John 5:3 Common English Bible (CEB)

It is not that hard, to love according to God’s holy law. Harry and Meghan decided to do it and so can we.

And this answers the question; Is love the same for us ‘commoners’ as it is for Harry and Meghan? Yes, love is the same for all of us.
We can all love like royalty, according to God’s holy law.

And the how to is clearly explained by the Ten Commandments (holy law).

Love one and other
