There's much excitement in the air as Christmas is just 10 short days away! Where did the time go? What are your Christmas plans? Some are traveling away from home, and some are staying right where they are. But wherever you plan to be on that day, it will no doubt be a fun-filled day of friends, family and lots of good food.
As always, let's not forget those around us who are alone or need some help. Do you have an elderly or ill neighbor who would love a home-cooked meal or a little company? Is there a small child in your neighborhood who is feeling too small to join in all the fun? Look around you for opportunities to help others and show the true Christian spirit of love and forgiveness, just as Jesus displayed whenever he spent time in a town or city. You'll feel so much better about yourself and your special place in this world!
Remember the words of the Apostle Luke when he said, "In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.' " Acts 20:35
Have a blessed day!
