The Reason for the Season...

In the midst of all the hustle and bustle this Holiday Season




It's so easy to get caught up in the details and the 'things' we need to get done.




We are all so busy with the hurrying and the scurrying



that we forget to take the time to think about what is truly important

and what we really should be mindful of during this season...

Pause for a  moment to reflect on these things...


HOPE
This is what we celebrate, the promise of a new life, everlasting in Jesus.
He is the reason for this Season



LOVE
We gather together to celebrate the  love of family and friends.
I encourage you to take every opportunityevery day
 to  demonstrate your love to family, friends and strangers,
and to simply let His love flow through you
to the world around you.
Life is so precious...
You may never get another chance,
to show kindness and love
so don't let any opportunity pass you by!




JOY

Let your hearts be filled to overflowing with JOY
not only during this season
 but throughout each day of your lives.
For many of us, life has become too busy
and many have lost their Joy.
I encourage you to become like a little child
and let Joy fill your heart to overflowing...




May your hearts be blessed beyond measure
and may your joy be full
this Season and throughout the coming years
Merry Christmas from my heart to yours ...
Denise

Deborah,
Yes, that is my tree. Are you working this weekend? Maybe we could get together for a cup of Chai tea?
