In the flurry of all the activity around you, remember the "Reason for the Season" and take time to enjoy your favourite Christmas traditions. With so many demands for your attention coming from every possible direction, be careful to guard YOUR Christmas. Plan special family times and make room for new holiday memories. Be creative and have fun. There will never be another "Christmas of 2008"!!
For some, this will be a sad Christmas - the first without that special someone. We cannot foresee the changes coming in 2009 - treasure ALL who will share this Christmas with you. Pray for those families who are mourning the loss of loved ones in 2008.
Jesus came to bring LIFE. The angels proclaimed, "Glad tidings of great joy!!" Don't allow yourself to get overloaded and stressed out. It's time to celebrate Jesus' birthday - get ready for the party!!
