Christmas Change

It is the last day of November.
A mostly cloudy, gray day. 
Soup simmering on the stove.
A quiet house.
Boxes scattered 'round.
Waiting to be opened.
Christmas to be displayed.
This Advent season...anticipation.
Remembering God's promise.
Looking for the Christ.
Open my heart, LORD.
Present Yourself radiantly.
More beautiful than any package I could wrap or receive.
You are the gift-giver and the gift all in one.
What more is there that I need?

In this holiday season of "giving and receiving" consider how you might spend less and give more to those in need. Visit this link. 
Think about it....join me as you use your resources to spread good news to those in desperate need, restoring the magic and wonder to this season.

My most special Christmas memories don't involve gifts or any of the consumerism of the holiday. I'm going to hold onto that this year in case I get caught up in the whirlwind. Thanks, Gina.
