Christmas is right around the corner and this year the mood is different somehow. People are still helping others, homes are still decorated with lights and cut outs, and children are still awaiting the arrival of Santa Clause. And yet... Something is missing. And in talking with others, this feeling is shared by many.
May I suggest as you scramble to pick up that last gift, or struggle to find the perfect one for that difficult friend or family member, you try to remember what Christmas is truly about.
Love, mercy and a gift so precious our simple minds can't even comprehend the magnitude of it all. Enjoy this season. Love those around you. Help those in need. Forgive. And share those blessings.
