With the spirit of Christmas hanging in the air it is only fitting that we fill our home with some good Christmas cheer!
It gives me a warm and happy feeling inside sitting on the living room sofa at night enjoying the bright Christmas lights dangling on the tree, with the shiny balls reflecting my face and the Santa dolls smiling their fake, painted smiles on me. Yes, I do love this season!
The shops are filled with bright decorations and annoying loud advertisers, booming into the microphone about a new jewelery sale or a new ladies' perfume! The horde of busy people thronging throughout Big W and Target is amazing! The busy season is here.
The sad part is soon it will all be over. No presents, no carols. People will continue on with their lives leaving the old year behind. Soon, they may forget what it feels like to see a Christmas tree up in lights or an unwrapped present on their lap. But maybe, just maybe, this Christmas they will take away something a little more special. The love of Jesus Christ whom Christmas all goes back too. I encourage you this Christmas to share the Gospel with someone who has not heard it before. Let them take away something special this Christmas so they can start the new year off with a BANG!
Happy (early) Christmas!
