Merry Christmas from Me to You…By Erica
Are you rushing about, feeling stressed, short on patience and still have a mile-long “to-do” list? It’s time to step back and change our perspective. To breathe and to center our hearts.
It’s not about the gifts, the perfect decorations, or holiday parties.
It’s not about elaborate dinners, the crowds at the mall, or living up to expectations we have set.
It’s not about things.
It’s about love, people, and the one gift that saved the world…Jesus.
It’s about sacrificial giving, showing love to those who seem to deserve it the least, and sharing what we have with those who are in greater need.
It’s reaching out to those who have wronged us, making time for those we love and hold dear, and searching our hearts for how we can make a difference not only during the days of Christmas, but all year long.
It’s not only showing love, but being love.
Christmas is love in action. Every time we love, every time we give, it’s Christmas.
Merry Christmas to you and yours. May your hearts be so full that you have no option but to share that fullness. May the blessings that you have been given be those with which you bless others.
He chose bread to feed us.
Water to wash us.
A baby to save us.
God uses the ordinary for His greatest work.
May He bless you and make your “ordinary” life a blessing to others.
