Well, Christmas is just around the corner – AND I’M NOT READY!! But I read something this morning that made me reflect upon the true meaning of Christmas.
I sit here and worry that the Christmas pudding isn’t made and I haven’t decided on a stuffing for the turkey yet. Yes – a whole bird for the first time! And really, it will all get done and be ready on the day. Aren’t we the luckiest family in the world. We will all be together on the day. My grandchildren will be over excited and very noisy (just the way it should be), we will share drinks before a sumptuous feast of baked turkey and ham, mouth-watering salad, and simply to die for deserts. We will share love, laughter and gifts – making us the richest family in the world.
The quote I read was:
At this festive season of the year…..
it is more than usually desirable that we should make some
some provision for the poor and destitute, who suffer greatly
at the present time…..
We choose this time, because it is a time, of all others, when
want is keenley felt and abundance rejecoices.
I know how busy it is in the last few days before Christmas, but today I am going to try to make a difference, giving of my time or my money, to someone who is having trouble making their dreams come true. I would encourage everyone to do the same.
Merry Christmas to you all. May you spend a wonderful time with your loved ones, and may you all be blessed to experience the true meaning of Christmas
