It’s that time of year again…..Christmas!!!!! Everyone is running all over town in search of that PERFECT gift. We want to make sure that our loved ones are excited and overjoyed at what they find in that small (or large) box. Some of us have contemplated for months what we would give as gifts. We’ve braved the cold to stand outside stores waiting for them to open. And even risked being stampeded by other people just to be the first one in the store. Unfortunately in all the hustle and bustle, we often forget what Christmas is really all about……the gift of love
Christmas is not only the celebration of the birth of Jesus, it is also the celebration of the greatest gift given to us all…..the gift of love. As a matter of fact it is the ULTIMATE gift of love. From this gift of love springs all other gifts of love. The story of the birth of Jesus has been told for centuries. As a matter of fact, the ‘Immaculate Conception’ was told long before the birth of Jesus. This story has been shared since Egyptian rule. Now, my purpose here is not to debate these stories or to even ‘prove’ their validity. My purpose is to show that no matter how far back you go in history, you will find a love story. And we all can appreciate a good love story.
I know that you are busy with holiday preparations, so I’ll be brief. In all that you are giving, be sure to give love. It’s the gift that keeps on giving.
