The snow showers are falling. The hills and lanes are covered with a white sheet of snow. The bells are echoing and the skies are filled with glittering star. It is Christmas. Christmas season comes once a year. It brings a bundle of joy and gay. Christmas is the birthday of the divine son. God took the form of man to save people from sin. According to the Gospel, one day the angel Gabriel came to a virgin named Mary at Nazareth and greeted her hail full of Gods grace! You will conceive by the power of the Holy Spirit and give birth to a child (Luke 1:28:38).
If there is an annual holiday tree lane in your community, you can drive down the street each year and let your kids enjoy the sight of elaborately decorated houses and Christmas trees. If the weather permits, everyone can enjoy a stroll. The entire family can also get some inspiration here, about what decorations to hang on the tree back home. Making this part of the family tradition will let the kids see how other homes celebrate their Christmas.
May this Christmas season bring joy, happiness, peace and prosperity to one and all.
This Christmas, give yourself plenty of time to prepare and dont worry if something goes wrong. After all, Christmas is not about where you spend it, or what you do - its about who youre with!
If youre cooking for a lot of people, chances are your kitchen (and fridge) just wont be able to cope with the volume of food required. Not to mention, trying to cook and prepare everything yourself can be a huge burden. By delegating certain tasks or meals to different family members or friends, you can make your job much simpler. Let other family members take care of cold dishes like salads and desserts so you can focus on the hot dishes and save room in your kitchen. Remember, you dont have to do it all yourself - youre always entitled to ask for help from friends and family!
Jesus is there to remind you always that joy is the answer and that if you will but seek it, the things you desire in life will move to rendezvous with you. Here is the thing, by focusing on the realities that bring your emotions down and away from the joy that Jesus pointed us to, life attracts undesirable experiences that pull you from the energies of joy.
