tagged X … xmas

tagged_X

I refused to write “Xmas” on greetings for the holiday cards I sent because I felt I was “x-ing” or nullifying the existence of Christ who is the real reason for the season of Christmas.  And then, I find out that “X” is the Greek letter “chi” and when added to “rho” (P) spells the Greek word “Kristos” translated, is CHRIST.

Many times we judge as we see or believe what we think is true.  What we can do is seek out to find the truth before even surmising anything.

After all is said, I still believe that “X-mas” is basically just a word.  What is important that the true meaning of CHRIST who is the Messiah should live in our hearts, accepted and believed because HE is.
