Yesterday I had one of those Oprah “Aha” moments. I was thinking about how much I didn’t want to go shopping this year and I decided that I wasn’t going to go shopping at all. Instead, I would buy “just because” gifts throughout the year to show people I really appreciate them. (I hate to shop…I hate mall crowds too.)
I’ve been reading a Bible plan called “Rediscovering The Christmas Season” in an attempt to get back to the real meaning of Christmas and after thinking about how bad I didn’t want to shop and what Christmas really means, I realized that all these years I’ve been missing the point!
Christmas is a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, but somehow or another, I’ve never been thoughtful enough to actually give him a gift on HIS birthday! How would you feel if on your birthday, everyone was given a gift but you?
This year, I want to give a gift to Jesus Christ. I’m not sure what it will be just yet, but I know that I want to put more focus on Him and what this wonderful holiday really means for us.
Be blessed and Merry Christmas to you all!
