Oh The Joys of Christmas
I love this time of year for many reasons,but mostly because it reminds me (in the event I have forgotten) that the Lord has blessed our family immensely despite our struggles over the past year. That our family is together and healthy and we all have a warm bed each night. That through the difficulties, ours are truly insignificant in the big scheme of things. And that we can continue to give to others and share our blessings with our friends, our family, and complete strangers. We can give something as simple as a smile to a stranger if we like and know that it made their day a little brighter. If only we could all live in peace.
Memories are the makings of Christmas - and all year through for many of us too! Happy memories are what remind us of the joys of having family and friends. Well, I hope that this being the 2nd day of Christmas for our 21 days of Christmas giveaway - that the gift will make your holidays a little brighter.
