Let’s not forget

There is always something more to do during the holidays. But let’s not forget the reason for the season. And if we try to help someone, we will make them and ourselves happier.  What can we do that might brighten someone’s day?

  • Did we visit that special holy place to show our love to God?
  • Did we give some of our hard-earned money to help someone in need?
  • Did we remember to take the time to pray with real intent to God?
  • Did we show our neighbor that this is a special time of year for Christians?
  • Did we try to help those who are going through hardship and trials?
  • Did we send cards to the lonely and those in the hospital?
  • Did we freely give of our time and talents?
  • Did we teach our loved ones by example how to serve others?

What is Christmas all about? It’s about love and helping one another. It’s about the birth of Jesus Christ. It’s about spreading goodwill to all people.
