Christmas Confusion

Father,

How do I become honest if I am unable to stop the confusion? The truth is, I am confused about how to celebrate Christmas.  I believe that You have given me the answer.  Yet it seems as if You haven't because I am more obsessed about making a budget than ever.  I am also more confused as to how to put Jesus into my plans.  Maybe there lies the problem.  If Jesus is the Reason for the season, then why am I so confused?  Help me with this confusion.  Lord, I need help and the money to buy all of those gifts soon and I also need to be reminded of Who and what are important.  How do I balance it all out?  I thank You that in Your word that You shall supply all of my needs according to Your riches and glory.  I strongly believe this and I will wait for You.  I promise that I will not limit You. I have no right to do since I am a flawed human and You are God.  I also believe that You know what I am going to say before I was thinking of saying it.  Christmas is my favorite holiday and I do admit that I do get caught up in the pomp and circumstance.  However, I am of the feeling that the more presents, the better the Christmas.  Open my eyes that I may see another point of view.  There is nothing where Christmas is mentioned,  There is also nothing that does says that outside the commercialism, it is sinful and idolatrous, but that is my two cents. How should I celebrate Christmas and I have wondered how You really feel about Christmas?  What does the Bible say about the money that I absolutely need to bake cakes, casseroles, and to buy presents?  I guess there is nothing wrong with giving and receiving gifts, but teach me what or Who is most important.  Thank You for answering my prayer.  I am waiting and anticipating Your answers.

In Jesus' name,

Amen
