allseasonswidgetsunset_4269-copy-copy          Hello SEASONS Bloggers,

Exitement is in the air – your posts are telling:) All your post were memorable and beautiful:)

Just to repeat, in case you missed last post. This week the link will be open all week (Sunday -Saturday) because of all the festivities that might be going on.
For Sunday January 1 – a new post! And back to regular linky list time (Sunday to Wednesday evening 7pm, Pacific time)
For me personally December 25 is about the birth of the Christ child, even though it may have been at a later date. This is not to dismiss or demean other beliefs. This is my personal one.

A very happy time for me, since our son, now a college graduate,  having a job – whom we haven’t seen in two years –  has come home from Europe to celebrate the holy days with us.




The hidden meanings of Christmas.
Why in the world was a “king” born in a stall or shed? So everyone could relate. Rich or poor.
The happiness of this significant birth that would rescue mankind, was preceded by some big sacrifices and confusion of the parents.




The destiny of this birth of a baby was the cross.
The interesting thing is that the beginning and the end of the story appear to be  bleak, dismal.

The middle as well as the very end are stunning, breathtaking, earth shattering with meaning when this child Jesus became an adult and did good everywhere he went, exposed hypocrisy, healed the sick, did miracles with food, stilled the storm.
The most incredible is that death had no power over him and  rose from the dead after three days.

I painted this boy who gave his lunch. It was multiplied to give bread and fish for 5000 men, plus women and children. One of the most amazing and mind boggling miracles.





a Merry Christmas to You and Yours,
a Happy Hanukkah, and a happy Kwanzaa!

    Merry Christmas to you and yours! I know what you mean about the meaning of Christmas. I am enthralled with your painting of the little boy. I always wondered what his mom thought when he came running home and told her what happened!

    Merry Christmas for you and yours 🙂

    Love the painting! Hope your Christmas was wonderful!

  6. We’re of the same beliefs, Jesh, so thanks for the lovely post about the true meaning of Christmas. Love your painting. As I have to work tomorrow and won’t have time to participate in the Weekly Photo Challenge until Saturday, I’ll do a post and link it tomorrow morning. Thanks.

    I very much would like your photo added:) Thank you!
    I sensed you had similar beliefs, because one time you mentioned you were on a worship team, but sometimes one is not sure till you (meaning: I) do not spell it out on one’s own post (that is not the reason why I posted this post like I did though.This year I feel more the freedom to do it, without ostracizing others, or presenting it in a cliche manner.
    PS you really don’t have to do a separate post, just add the name ALL SEASONS somewhere in the text. Cheers, Jesh~

  8. Have my post all ready for morning, Jesh. It’s the perfect answer to “What will I do for Friday’s post?” 🙂 Thanks. My Christmas Day post makes my beliefs clear each year, too.

    Wonderful post Jesh & too often the True Meaning of Christmas is lost in all the business & consumerism that society in general puts on it.

  10. So happy to have found your blog, Jesh! We must be neighbors, I live in Sacramento. Saw your blog and link-up through Janet’s blog, Sustainabilitea. I am also hosting a Seasonal link-up and would love to see your posts there!

  11. I hope you had a lovely Christmas!
