WAS JESUS THE REASON FOR YOUR SEASON
Christmas has come and gone for another year. As you reflect on this Christmas Season can you see the things you did reflecting Christ. There have been visits from our kids, visits to our parents and grandparents. Many hugs and kisses as we go our way.
Everyone has been jolly and wished others “Merry Christmas” as we go on our hurried way. We have opened our gifts and given our gifts hoping we gave just the right thing or received what we hinted to someone we wanted.
Some have gone to Christmas programs at school and church and rejoiced as the Christ child is lifted high to the world. In the midst of all of this I hope you took time for Jesus and did just what our Lord would have you do.
I enjoyed our time at church as we opened the gifts brought for Christ that was placed under our tree. There were simple things like Kleenex and paper towels and church supplies that will help in the year ahead. We even took some of the cash and bought windshield washer to put in our bathrooms to help them not freeze this winter.
Being on Face book has been a blessing because we got to see and hear from so many of you as you shared pictures or told about your love for Jesus in this Christmas season.
Then, I like many of you had moments of remembering our love ones that left us this year. So many of you knew just what to share to lift some of us up in this moment of sadness in our lives and we are thankful.
I believe for many of you Jesus was the reason for the season as you helped your family and friends and strangers have a joyous Christmas Season. Whether it was a hug, a gift card, a kind note or just a simple I love you I believe that is what Jesus would have done.
One of my friends had his second Christmas celebration his return to Christ. One shared they were on the streets of Denver and several accepted Christ. Wow! What joy filled my soul as I read of souls coming home to Jesus.
Wherever you were, whatever you did to share Jesus is special. My prayer would be we would remember this ole world and all we endeavor to do in the year ahead like it was Christmas.
