This month we are celebrating Christmas, and what better way to do that than to share these Thoughts to Inspire to help you reflect on what is important to you this season.
What do you look back at fondly in your Christmas’ past? I know that I like those quiet moments sipping a cup of coffee in front of the Christmas tree on cold winter days. But I also enjoy the time spent with both close and extended family. Baking Christmas cookies or getting together for a Christmas meal.
I do firmly believe that “Christ” mas should be observed publicly rather than “holiday”. After all he is the reason for the season, and truly amazing magical things can and do happen around Christmas!
Wouldn’t it be amazing if everyone would just be kind to each other? What a wonderful world it would be if we could spread kindness instead of hate.
Christmas brings about so much more spirit. That feeling is hard to find at other times, especially when there are circumstances that make life more difficult. Winter in general is hard for me because of my physical ailments, but leading up to Christmas it weighs less on my heart and mind because I try to immerse myself in the season. I hope all of you can do the same!
Do you think of Christmas as a holiday based on materialistic need? Or that it materializes itself from our feelings of giving and sharing of gifts both of physical and sentimental nature? Do you appreciate those gifts that people have put their time and effort into vs. the expensive name brand items the stores push around Christmas. It is so much more than just the gifts, it’s the food, drink, the togetherness, music, and worship that surrounds us now and through the season.
I truly hope that you found these Thoughts to inspire helpful in finding your spirit this Christmas, and hope you all have the best Christmas yet!
