Is it the most wonderful time of the year? For many I am sure it is but there are so many that it is not. For some people the holiday season is the hardest time of the year. With Thanksgiving and Christmas about a month apart that can make it a hard month or so.
If you have a friend or loved one that has gone through a difficult situation this year or even in years past the holidays can easily bring a range of emotions for that person. Perhaps they have lost their job, lost a loved, gone through a divorce or a variety of other things.
I think we get so busy in our own lives with all the hustle and bustle of the season that we sometimes don't take time to stop, smile and possibly make someones day.
Christmas is not suppose to be about the hustle and bustle and having to be somewhere way too many nights of the week. Christmas is about the birth of Jesus, our Savior. We need to let others see Jesus in us at all times and that is at Christmas time too.
This Christmas when you see someone, especially when you are so busy you don't know what to just stop and smile and tell that person "Merry Christmas". You may never know what it could mean to them. You may be the only person that really acknowledges them the whole day. You never know what a second of kindness during this time of the year may mean to so many.
Will you join me this Christmas season and make a conscious effort to slow down and let those around you see Jesus in you.
Merry Christmas to each of you and Happy Birthday Jesus!!!
