Every year I think I truly learn more and more about WHY and WHO we are celebrating at Christmas. It has nothing to do with the gifts (although I enjoy giving them) and the parties (although they are fun) but it is about celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ over 2000 years ago. Its about remembering the day that He came from His heavenly home to dwell among men for 33 years.
This year, I think I intended to not let the hustle and bustle of what the world has made Christmas out to be, get to me but, instead, it did. I got so concerned with what to buy for family members that I almost forgot about why this is usually my favorite time of year.
I could go without receiving gifts. It’s not necessary for me to receive. However, I’m not sure I could go without giving gifts. I just think that I will need to start thinking of other things I could do for gifts…
I’ve been sort of emotional these last few weeks, too. I feel like I am going to cry at the drop of a hat if I hear a happy or sad story. I think I will need to stop watching Find My Family just for that reason alone. I have some theories as to why I am feeling this way but I think I’ll leave that between God and me.
Well, it’s off to bed for me. I have to be up early so I can go into my office early to finish up preparing documents for an appointment first thing this morning. Oh the life for a paralegal. One thing I can say about my job – it is rarely boring.
Good night all and Merry Christmas! May God Bless You!
