I couldn’t help but smile when I saw this post on Facebook. Of course I felt bad for my friend for a brief moment, but then I just had to smile again!
I wonder often about this holiday season, it’s real meaning and how it’s gotten so out of control. I can’t even point a finger, I’m totally part of the madness! Not so much shopping and more shopping (although being a first time grandma I couldn’t help myself) but the whole crazy package of what we do to “celebrate” the season… All to often the “real” meaning of the season comes in last! Santa seems to be first for most, and again I have to admit I’ve been caught up in all the tinsel and lights!
I wonder about my own childhood, the baby Jesus, church and all our traditions… As I’ve aged I wonder more and more about the Christmas season. It’s certainly not like I remember as a child and now there are little grandchildren to create memories for…
So as the new traditions are created, perhaps for dessert on Christmas a birthday cake for the baby Jesus this year… In Addition, for me there is something so magical about Santa and Rudolf with his nose so bright… My own childhood comes alive!
But let’s remember what’s truly important…
Teaching children how to give and not just receive should be a priority… A great lesson to tie Santa and Gods gift of his son the baby Jesus during this Christmas Season.
However that looks for you…. Give love!
And please remember to tie down your Christmas tree! Oh Christmas Tree!
Thanks for the smile Lisa!
Living this Christmas season filled with love, awe and wonder…
