Wishing you all a Merry Christmas filled with love, laughter and treasured memories with family & friends!
If you had to pick ONE WORD to characterize Christmas, what would it be? For me it’s LOVE. It’s the time of year we focus more on loving others. It’s when we are reminded of God’s love for us.
This year especially I am so thankful for the love of God, family and friends. Because LOVE is truly the best gift we could ever give or receive. I pray that I continue to learn to love others better than the previous year. Because in the end, will I care how successful I was? Or how much “stuff” I accumulated? Or how popular I was on social media? I THINK NOT. Because the true meaning of life – is to love God and love others.
Love is an action. Kindness, respect, generosity, forgiveness, putting others before ourselves…
Sadly, I look at the state of our world, so much hate…so much unkindness…so little respect. My Christmas wish this year, is that peoples hearts would soften towards each other. That kindness, respect, forgiveness & love would spread like a wildfire in dry summer grass, across our world. One person at a time, until it’s beauty brightens like Christmas lights, warms hearts like our roaring Christmas fires and spreads joy like a child opening their treasured Christmas gifts!
From our house to yours, much love & warmth at Christmas!
