|There are so many things to get done during the Christmas season! |
The decorating, the shopping, cooking, wrapping gifts,
and addressing and sending cards. It can all be sort of
overwhelming. And it is easy to become apathetic and
|We sang our Christmas program tonight. It was filled with |
encouraging messages of hope, peace, and joy. It
warmed my soul as I sang the lyrics
to the beautiful music. One song spoke to me:
"Lord Jesus, come and shine in our darkness;
come and speak to our longing;
come and sing to our silence.....
Let Christmas begin."
I believe if I can hold onto the real meaning of this season...
preparing for Christ's return to our hearts
and our lives, then the discouragement and
despair will disappear.
My "to do " list will seem joyful, and making preparations for
my family and friends will bring a sense of gratitude. I am grateful for
our Savior and a season each year when we celebrate His birth, and
remember why He came. Let Christmas begin...in each of you.
And God bless us all!
