I’m awake at 3am, Dec 25th 2016, because my son was thirsty, now I can’t go back to sleep, so here I am to drop a timely thought.
What does Christmas mean to you? This question is asked to guests at our Church’s Christmas carol every year. This year, I am asking myself the same question as part of the reflections that I usually have at this time of the year.
Christmas means three things to me. REST. HONOR. REFLECTIONS
Rest in every meaning of the word. Timeout. A break from work – Thank goodness for the holidays. Time for self, family and friends.
Honor: A special day reserved to honor my lover and best friend – Jesus Christ. It doesn’t matter if He was born exactly on this day over 2,000 years ago, it’s just a day to remember, honor and appreciate Him for giving true meaning to the word – Love.
Reflections: Just like this post, I am reflecting on how the year went; things that went well, things that could be better and things that didn’t get a chance at all. The outcome is always Gratitude.
As the day unfolds, Enjoy every bit of it as you remember the reason for the season.
