Christmas is by far my favourite time of year!
I’m a giver.
I love to give gifts, do things for others and in general, be in service to others.
Christmas allows me to do this without people thinking I’m weird.
Well, they still think I’m weird, but less so.
Even though there is a lot of hustle and bustle, time just seems to slow down a bit. It gives me time to reflect on all the blessings that have been granted me. It gives me time to appreciate all the people near and dear to me.
I am so fortunate to have a loving family that forgives all my idiosyncrasies and oddities that make me who I am.
I am blessed with friends that are generous and caring and my days are filled with the kindnesses they show me.
I am in awe of the mercy and grace my Saviour grants to me.
To my family and friends:
If I don’t get a chance to tell you this face to face, know that I love you and appreciate you for who you are because you do the same for me. Thank you for the hugs you’ve given, the laughs you’ve shared and the time we’ve spent together.
Let’s not wait so long till the next time we meet and let’s be sure to pick up just where we left off.
On our Saviour’s birthday, share with me the wonder and glory of Jesus’ birth and the gift we have been given in His coming.
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!
