The Christmas season is upon us and with it comes feelings of stress as well as many other feelings...good and not so good. Personally, I love the season from Thanksgiving all the way through New Year's, with Thanksgiving being my favorite, of course.
There is no greater gift in the world than that of a Savior. While I will not 'boycott' Christmas, I will try desperately to not get caught up in the commercialization of the season. That is not always as easy as it sounds, is it? I want to remember the Real Reason for the Season. That Reason is the reason that I can live a life of joy in a time of economical turmoil. That Reason is the reason that I can know that I know that I know that I am going to live for eternity with my Lord.
Yes, I am going to de-stress my Christmas holiday by remembering that God gave me an amazing Gift that changed my life. Therefore, I will do my best to give gifts to those that I love and that have made a difference in my life...the kinds of gifts that will make a difference to them.
Have a blessed Christmas season...and please, remember...God gave!
