We women give and give and give all year long.
Give yourself one present this year. But promise not to open it on Dec 25th.
Do not unwrap past hurts, grudges or mistakes so often brought out when families get together.
Box them up and tie them up with a bow of forgiveness.
Leave them at the manager and give them to the Christ child. Then receive His presence in return.
Let the season fill you with peace and joy in the stillness of the moment of “now”, free from angst, anger or brokenness and filled only with His Spirit of mercy and love.
Don’t carry anything but love, peace and positive thoughts into 2013.
A blessed and safe Christmas to each and every one of you.
