My family and many others have been preparing our hearts during the Advent season for the birthday of our Lord.
It warms my heart to see all the giving, generosity, and love between families, neighbors and strangers during the Christmas holiday.
When the last present is opened, the last cookie eaten, and the last decoration put away, it brings me great joy in knowing that Christ remains.
I want to remember that the needy are still in need when Christmas is over. Grandparents and the elderly still need the company of visitors, neighbors would still find happiness in a plate of cookies left at their door. Just because Christmas ends does not mean our generous hearts and love should end too.
I hope that everyone has a joyful Christmas and that we keep our hearts open to be examples of Christ.
Lets see if we can keep the spirit of Christmas going all year long.
May your Christmas be full of love and blessings and I pray that we continue let the love of Christ guide us the whole year through!
