The 12 Blogging Questions Of Christmas – Day 6 – What Do You Believe In?

Sixteen years ago today, Fionnuala made one of the worst decisions of her life. She married me! I’m joking…..I think. Since then, we have had our ups and downs, but we are still together and facing all the world has to throw at us. We have been blessed with three wonderful kids, and I’m looking forward to finishing work today and spending five (yes five) days off, in their company.

I won’t be running over the Christmas break, due to illness, so hope to spend as much time as possible lounging on the sofa watching Christmas movies and observing the ongoing chaos all around me. I don’t deserve my wife and kids, but I have them anyway. They are always there to support me, be it in my work, my writing, or my running. They believe in me, so I must be doing something right.

Christmas is all about belief. For the kids, it can be whether or not the big guy in the red suit exists and, if so, are you on the good or naughty list. For others, it can be whether or not the Son of God arrived over 2000 Christmases ago, or is that nothing more than an elaborate fairytale. We all need to believe in something. For if we don’t believe in something, then we’ll fall for anything.

What do you believe in?

Who believes in you?

  1. I believe in faith, family, and love. I know that sounds like a cheesy “stereotypical Christian” response, but it’s the truth. I’ve learned a lot over the past year plus, and one of those things was what my core beliefs really are.

  2. You do deserve your family I’m sure of it. I believe in this time of year bringing family and friends closer together. I’ve only seen my mother twice this year and one of them was because ‘It’s Christmas’. Aside from that friends make the effort more, as do I because people just do at this time of year. We actually take time out of our busy lives to spend time with each other and enjoy each other’s company rather than constantly thinking about the lunches that need to be made and if the PE kit is washed. I believe in Christmas bringing the best out of people.

  3. I believe that God chose that moment to break into human history that His Son would be incarnate in that little baby; thus setting into motion His plan of salvation for the world. The more I ponder it, the real it becomes to me that the God of the Universe would choose such a humble way to bring His message of hope to the world.

    BTW, that is a fantastic picture of the Black Family!

  4. I believe that Jesus is the Son of God and came to earth to show His great love for us. I love that when He came it was not to a king’s palace – but to people just like me – humble and unknown. I also believe that I have been blessed to have my wonderful family. And the picture of your family – clearly you have a beautiful family – and you are blessed also. Have a Merry Christmas! Enjoy taking it easy for a few days.
