Christmas brings family and friends together. It helps us appreciate the love in our lives, which we sometimes can take for granted.
Unfortunately the retailers with big budgets have hijacked the season and would rather have us distracted by purchasing of gift items and other meaningless stuff all in the spirit of the holidays. They have subtly removed the Christ in Christmas and replaced it with an X. But “Xmas” is meaningless without Christ.
Christmas is more than just another public holiday. It goes beyond Santa Claus, a bag of goodies and roasted chicken. The true meaning of Christmas is marked by Jesus who is the gift given to humanity by our Creator.
So during this Season of giving let us take time to slow down and truly enjoy the simple things we’ve all been blessed with: good health, great friends and an amazing family.
May the true meaning of the holiday season fill your heart and home with many blessings today and throughout the New Year.
