Christmas is such a wonderful time of the year. A time we look forward to ALL year long! We all look forward to the presents, food, & all that holiday cheer, but we often forget the reason for the season---That is why I did the "12 Days of "What Christmas means to you" posts. (to see, click the label to the right of the the page that says "12 days of CHRISTmas.") I hope that with the 12 days you've been able to come to understand the TRUE meaning of Christmas. I also hope you've had time to think about "What Christmas means to YOU" personally. Write it down somewhere. You will be glad you did!
Because I had so many entries I decided to just hold mine till this post, to share with my special blog readers :)
"To me Christmas is a time to remember all that Christ has done for us. To repay Him. To give the gift of love. To show love. To be more CHRISTlike. A time to grow closer to Him & strengthen our testimony of Him. A time of happiness. Happiness that #becauseofHim we can start over & again and again. #BecauseofHim we can have hope."
So many people that did the 12 days of Christmas with me said that Christmas was a time of giving, service, family & most importantly a time to remember Christ and His birth. Which is so true! Wouldn't it be great to have this all throughout the year? I think it would. Could you imagine everyone doing one more nice "Christmasy" thing a day. Just think about how much that could mean to someone, who in return might go do something else nice to someone else?
During the Christmas season we all seem to have that mindset that "its Christmas- we need to be nicer" but why can't we do that throughout the whole entire year? Why do we just wait for December or Christmas break to began the Christlike thinking and doing?
Some people think that when Christmas is over so is the happiness, singing, giving, helpfulness, service, caring & love. When Christmas is over do you return to work or school your old self? The you that wasn't as caring & kind? The you that said "oh someone else can help." During Christmas everyone is that much nicer & that much more caring. So why can't that continue throughout the year? I think we can if we all make a goal to spread Christmas cheer & love all throughout the year!
So will you make one of your New Years resolution to continue the Christmas throughout the year, with me?
SO...Lets keep the Christmas spirit alive.
