|How are an old silk hat Fred VanVleet Jersey , corn cob pipe, button nose, and boots related?? They are all owned by a lump of snow called Frosty, the Snowman.
To the general public, Frosty the Snowman represents joy. The joy of living. The joy of laughter. The joy of watching children play. The joy of spontaneity. The joy of meaningful work. The joy of being with the people you love. Frosty, the Snowman symbolizes all of that. He is joy personified.
Most people, when they hear the words Delon Wright Jersey , Frosty, the Snowman, break into a smile. A gleam appears in their eyes. Children ages 3 to 93 identify with Frosty's playfulness and zest for life. However Frosty represents much, much more.
When the traditional Christmas story is read, it's either the Gospel of Matthew or Luke that are used. Both these Gospels contain beautifully-told pieces relating the miraculous birth involving both the Divine and the human. The authors of Matthew and Luke also seek to place the birth of Jesus in a particular historical and cultural setting. Jesus is born to poor Jewish parents, but is also described as a descendent of Israel's greatest king, King David. His birth is given a definite time and place.
But Danny Green Jersey , there is something totally different in Jon. There's no nativity, no shepherds, no Magi, no star in the sky, no heavenly hosts, not even so much as a Mary and Joseph.
What you get in John's Gospel instead is some rather esoteric sounding language about something called "The Word:" "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God C.J. Miles Jersey , and the Word was God" Several verses later you read, "And the Word became flesh and dwelt amongst us" Then, not too many more verses after that, Jesus is suddenly baptized and starts out in his ministry. If John's account were all we had to go on, we might be celebrating Christmas a little differently.
What John's Gospel tells us is the Word became real, became flesh, became incarnatedand became a living http://www.officialraptorsproshop.com/ , breathing part of us.
Christmas is an incarnation story. It is the tale of the Incarnating Christ in each of us. It is the account of our unfolding Christhood.
So what does this have to do with Frosty the Snowman? Consider this: Frosty came to life one day, dwelt among us and told us It would be back again one day. The parallel is obvious.
Joyfulness, not struggle, is the good news. Laughing and playing, dancing around in a silk hat, ball cap, boots Cheap Toronto Raptors Jerseys , sandals or barefooted is the message. We are meant to enjoy this Earth experienceto spend this incarnation, happily, healthily and prosperouslyTo dance and play and create and achieve until we melt away.
From Frosty, we can learn a new set of "Three R's":
I. Release any worries about the future, and focus on now.
II. Recognize the Source: It's not in your hat - it's in your heart!
III. Reaffirm Joy, regardless of what the world of appearance might be!
And KNOW that you can never be separated from your good, from God http://www.officialraptorsproshop.com/kids-vince-carter-raptors-jersey/ , because you and God are one! And that is cause for JOY!

SEOUL, Oct. 2 (Xinhua) -- South Korean President Moon Jae-in's approval rating rebounded in five weeks on Moon's meeting with opposition party leaders to discuss security issues, a poll showed Monday.
According to the Realmeter survey http://www.officialraptorsproshop.com/kids-tracy-mcgrady-raptors-jersey/ , support for Moon was 67.7 percent last week, up 2.1 percentage points from a week earlier.
It was based on a poll of 2,523 voters conducted from last Monday to Friday. It had 2 percentage points in margin of error with a 95 percent confidence level.
Moon's support ended the downward trend for the past four weeks, during which tensions escalated on the Korean Peninsula following the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK)'s nuclear and missile tests.
The rebound was mainly attributed to Moon's meeting last week with chiefs of the four opposition parties to discuss security issues. The main opposition Liberty Korea Party head refused to attend the meeting.
Moon's ruling Democratic Party maintained its top post with 49.7 percent of support scores.
It was followed by the Liberty Korea Party with 17.1 percent.
