Christmastime’s a ‘favorite’ for most people I know. I love how special it is, thinking what makes it so . . .
Gentle snowfalls or raging blizzards, a white blanket all around; early shopping and hiding presents, trying not to make a sound
Skating on the frozen pond, sledding down steep hills; skiing on a mountain top, seeking wondrous thrills
Decorating the tree with shiny bulbs and twinkling lights; “oohing” and “aahing” at the sparkly sight
Baking yummy cookies shaped in stars and bells and snowmen; after nibbling on a ‘few,’ later wondering where they all went
Wrapping presents with bright colors and bows; listening to Christmas music and singing cheery carols
Sipping on steamy hot chocolate or spiced apple cider; watching a holiday movie, cozying up by a crackling fire
Glowing candles flickering tiny light; a festive holiday mood, bringing great delight
Giving gifts to those you love; ripping yours open and thanking the One above
Christmas Eve and Christmas morn, celebrating when Christ was born!
Thinking on these things is blissful, and God loves it when I do. Enjoy this wondrous holiday season, and Merry Christmas to all of you!
Philippians 4:8 – “. . . whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think on these things.”
