Celebrating The Holidays at Baptist Life Communities

As 2017 quickly comes to an end, we look back on a year filled with memories. It seems like yesterday we rung in the new year, praised Jesus on Easter, watched fireworks on the 4th, indulged our sweet tooth on Halloween, and feasted on Thanksgiving. As the temperatures drop and festivities begin, we turn the page to December and now…

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year: Every family has their Christmas traditions. Perhaps mom and dad creep through the halls at night to hide that mischievous “Elf on the Shelf.” Maybe you sprinkle a shimmering coat of reindeer food in the freshly fallen snow. Or maybe a friendly family feud results from taking grandmas' gift in the final round of White Elephant. One thing is for sure, what makes the holidays such a special time is being surrounded by the ones you love. And that’s why…

I’ll Be Home for Christmas: Planes, trains, and automobiles get their fair share of miles during the month of December. As told by Dr. Seuss from How the Grinch Stole Christmas:

“It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, He thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.”

It’s not about the best presents or the biggest party, it’s about being together. Near or far, old or young, it’s important to spend time with friends and family during the holiday season. And while we celebrate this special time together, we sing…

Joy to the World the Lord Has Come: It’s important to remember the reason for the season. Here at Baptist Life Communities, we remind our residents, families, and friends that we celebrate this special day because it was the day our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem. We remember and celebrate with thankfulness, for it is He who created each and every one of us and this wonderful world we call home.

From all of us here at Baptist Life Communities, we wish you and your family a blessed Christmas Season and a Happy New Year!
