It is Christmas day, and yes it is his birthday, he gives us a reason to celebrate and have a grand time with friends, families and loved ones. This beautiful day requires so much preparation and then in one day it all comes to a stand still people get together, eat, exchange gifts and observe how much the children has grown.
Christmas has always been pretty much the same for me except that it has been getting quieter each year. It used to be a day of double celebrations in my household a birthday and Christmas day. When life happens sometimes you win and sometimes you lose but either way it may be stressful.
On a day when everyone is supposed to be excited and celebrating there is someone out there (a) who is cold and hungry, (b) without family (c) sad (d) homeless (e) alone (f) dying (g) terminally ill and (h) working outdoors in unpleasant and frigid temperatures. We should all take the time to pray for those people and all that they must endure and encounter during such a festive season. Instead of being miserable because you didn’t get the gift you wanted think of those who didn’t get a gift, those who are in need of basic necessaries and have nothing. Perhaps you should consider recycling or donating the items you won’t ever use to those who will use them.
I am truly appreciative of this day I look forward to it as a period of rest, much like all the other holidays I rest and get caught up on my thoughts and plans. For me this time of reflection is truly easy because I have a small circle which makes it easier to manage my time. It’s great to know a lot of people but not everyone is worthy of becoming our family or friends nor produce healthy relationships.
So instead of being unappreciative and sulking over a gift, think of those who are truly in need and would love to smile for one minute and just donate your unwanted items to the charities, women’s shelters and not for profit organizations who would love to have those items. Afterall, why not spread some love on Christmas day, it is the season of giving which is why God gave his only son Christ so that we may remember the joys of receiving and the benefits of sharing…Christ is one half of Christmas.
