Santa and his gifts are the dreams of every child during this season. Carols are sung during this season. These songs bring out the Christmas message and the splendor of the season. This season also offers a lot of room for sharing and caring for the poor. Jesus was born in a manger and proclaimed that he is for the poorest of the poor.
When you hear a Christmas carol, you cant help but be reminded of those happy Christmas times during your childhood. What particular childhood memories are brought back every year? The ones you can think of are most likely the traditional ways of celebrating Christmas. Children these days will surely enjoy a few traditional holiday celebrations that your parents established yearly when you were young. Maybe you can decorate cookies with your kids. Maybe you can try to whip up a few treats with the help of your kids. There are always ways to recreate those special holiday family traditions and let your kids experience them.
It neednt be just a replay from the past. Suppose we caught up to the clearest understanding of the message of Jesus and by doing so change everything. When He said, Ask and it is given, it was literal and when we learn how this works you will wonder why it was you never were taught this at a younger age.
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!
May you carry the joy you create everywhere you go?
