Christmas is in the air, it captures our hearts and brings out the best in us. A notable holiday season, each year we take the time….to reflect, renew and recreate the celebration of Christmas that brings meaning in our life. Christmas rooted deeply, dwells love, and plenteous goodwill enfolds our hearts and our homes. Through the exchange of gifts and cards, sending emails, text messages and phone calls....we keep it alive!
Christmas….a momentous occasion of the year, a festive celebration, the time of the year we all celebrate. The word CHRISTMAS, to commemorate our service of thanking “CHRIST” united in terms of faith, we worship (regardless of each respective religion) we celebrate the “MASS” The gifts, the feast, the wishing of cheer to all, creates a special atmosphere. The best of all gifts is the presence of family and friends all wrapped-up in each others thought and kind deed manifest our lives.
The traditional real Christmas trees come from different variety of pine trees. From beginning to end, life span of stately evergreen trees, are everlasting because they remain green all year round, their needles pointing upwards and so are we, our thoughts towards heaven, keeping warmth in our hearts, representing dreams and everlasting hope. Endless unlimited resources of heavenly promises, fills our hearts with light of real true love that never ceases, having the courage and strength in the midst of unlikely dreaded impossiblcircumstances. Hopeful and wishful thinking evokes possibilities of hopes and dreams.
Christmas is not all about spending money on expensive gifts. The real meaning of Christmas is blown out of proportion and often lost. Hectic commotion for commercialized promotion, immense commercialism of advertising and marketing can spoil the true meaning of holiday season. Hope you do not regard extravagant, elaborate parties as your melting pot of celebration and hope you do not let expensive material stuffs, rule or overshadow the real reason we celebrate Christmas. Despite all the material hype, Christmas always will be a celebration that captures the Heart.
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!
