CHRISTMAS is the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. Throughout the years, many celebrations taken place for select occasions but mostly everyone enjoys this Christmas season. What is it that gives you that special Christmas feeling? People are lamenting that the time now goes by so quickly, and so there hardly seems time to enter into the true spirit of the season. Yet there is always the special element that really makes one feel that Christmas is here.
Christmas is a time of giving, and so we give gifts to our family, friends, neighbours, workers, Churches, and those we are aware of. However, we need to share selflessly with those persons who do not know us and do not have the means to repay our kindness. This works very well, as you are bringing joy and happiness to those who had no means of enjoying the Christmas season. By doing this, you of course will be blessed by God in a very special way, for as in giving you will receive.
There are parties, lunches, dinners, singing Christmas songs, invitations from many persons, and joyful events that will make everyone enjoy the day of Christmas in a very special way. These events continue over the years, and so all these things are totally dedicated to Christmas, and everyone makes plans for all of these, so that they can have a very lovely and enjoyable Christmas time.
Sometimes people who are not dedicated to the Christmas season, are not as excited about this. However, Christmas can never be ignored as everyone sees all that others have done. Lovely lights, Christmas trees, decorations, lovely music which relates so much to Christmas, and they can see so many people who are totally related to the Christmas season, especially children who enjoy this more than ever. They are looked after and given such beautiful gifts which makes them so happy at this time. Can we ignore Christmas? Not really, as it is such a lovely season of the year.
Have you already prepared everything that you would like to do? Have you been patient and accepted all that is being done in your life this year? There is no reason to panic and to think that this year will not be nice. Accept, all that is currently going on, do what you can, and serve everyone in a very special way, so that there will be joy in your life on this Christmas day.
Let peace and joy reign in your hearts during the Holiday season. Let the birth of our Saviour and the message of Hope, Peace and Love that is brought to mankind remain with you, not only throughout the season, but also throughout the coming year.
May you all have a Blessed and Merry, Merry Christmas, and a Happy, Happy New Year, filled with God’s love in all of your needs.
