Hello dear one,
Two days till Christmas. While the bells are ringing and children are singing and you are. . .stressed? Sad? Or maybe feeling jolly? Whatever you are feeling in this moment, know that this is just a moment. Trials will come. They will pass. Pain will come, and this too shall pass. And sometimes, the sweetest moments happen.
This life is incredible. And, we don’t want to miss it. Each moment matters. Don’t numb out of life by constant business. Or overeating. Or drinking to dull the pain. Pause right now. Silence is calming. And stillness is bliss. “Be still and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10). God is with you in this moment, the hard and the beautiful. Acknowledge His Presence and be thankful. Christmas is about the birth of our Savior. Not the roasted chestnuts. Not the wreath on the door or the cookies in the oven. Not the presents under the tree. Christmas is about God’s Gift for you. “For unto you is born this day in the city of David, a Savior which is Christ the Lord” (Luke 2:11). Please dear one, pause this very moment and remember the reason for the season. And may you find joy in this moment!
Merry Christmas, Linda
