One Last Christmas

I heard the most amazing song this morning. It spokes volumes to me and broke my heart at the same time. 

We need to remember what Christmas is truly about. It's not about the lights, the gifts, the food, or the engagements. It's not about a fat man in a red suit, or flying reindeer, or even elves that create fun & mischief throughout your house. There is nothing wrong with any of those things & for many (my family included), they add fun & memories for years to come.

We get caught up in the hustle & bustle. We fall victim to looking for the "perfect" present. Some even actively try to "out do" others.

Christmas is about the birth of a tiny baby who changed the world more than ANYONE ever could have imagined! Christmas is about love & kindness. Christmas is about being with family & friends even when its not convenient.

Christmas is supposed to be a joyous time, but so many people struggle through depression, anger, & grief every year when the holidays roll around.

While this story is heart wrenching, unfortunately, it's not the only one like it. Whether its a child, a sibling, a parent, or a friend, far too many people will experience Christmas for the last time this year. 

What if this was your last Christmas? Take the time to let others know you LOVE them! Don't just say it! SHOW IT!

Most importantly, make sure that you KNOW that you KNOW that you KNOW where you will spend eternity! Make sure that your family knows as well! 

I can't think of a better CHRISTmas present than to receive CHRIST & share HIM with those around you!
