Sabbath

Do you know what the Bible says about the Sabbath or “Lord’s Day”?  Do you have any idea as to just what ‘day’ that really is?  Sunday is ‘my’ Sabbath, but there are folks who observe a different day of the week. I celebrate the birthday of JESUS on December 25. Thanksgiving Thursday and Easter Sunday vary, according to a man-made calendar.  During the end of my tenure as a teacher, we changed Christmas to “Winter Break”; Thanksgiving pretty much remained, but Easter became “Spring Break”. It seems only Christians had their special days renamed. “Chanukah” has nothing to do with “Christmas”. It runs from December 12 to December 20 and celebrates the defeat of the Greeks and reclaiming of the Temple in Jerusalem in the 3rd Century. That’s why we see so much depiction of the “seven candles” prior to  December 25. We also get more “Season’s Greetings” and “Happy Holidays” than “Merry Christmas”. I was told by my elementary principal that he would ‘prefer’ that I not include carols in my Christmas Concert. I respectfully declined. That also was the same administrator who presented my copy of his evaluation of my performance with the name of my predecessor in the blank. I still have that somewhere. It was never corrected.  What really excites me is the day I meet My LORD JESUS and all will be made clear. It won’t matter anyhow, then, donchaknow. One thing I am assured of, however…and that’s the fact that I can pray, praise and proclaim without fear of reprisal since MY FATHER has it all under control. I believe everyday is Christmas, Thanksgiving and Easter. Really. And that’s what I get from My Box of Chocolates.   AMEN
