I have come to realize that many people are finding it hard to celebrate Christmas this year due to the tough economic situation and also the down times faced during the year.
In the past whenever it was Christmas, I used to wake up on every 25th expecting to feel this force or this joy that I had seen many times on TV which never came. So I told myself, “well, maybe next year will be better” and as I learnt, there was no special joy that visited me on Christmas Day.
Therefore, this is a message to everyone who maybe thought and felt the same way. The truth is there is no special feeling to expect on Christmas day. Whether Jesus was born on the 25th December or 3rd August, what matters is how is your heart everyday?
How do you serve others? How do you relate with others? What is inside of your heart? Love, Joy, Forgiveness, Gratitude, Appreciation, Peace, Long-suffering, Truth, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, Self-Control?
If not, how about making it a resolution to be a blessing to somebody and to love just for the good of it from today onwards?
This is how my Christmas joy and feeling finally found me, I didn’t wait around for it anymore. I went to get it myself and I hope and pray that everyday, I keep loving, keep believing for and in my loved ones.
For now, from mine to yours. Have yourselves and Merry Merry Christmas and Happy Rest of the year.
