One Thing God Wants You To Remember At Christmas

It's December and I am still trying to figure out what happen to the other 11 months of the year. As we are drawing closer to CHRISTMAS, I wanted to leave you with a great article that I read over the weekend from Sharon Jaynes called "One thing God wants you to Remember at Christmas". I think it says it all. Enjoy and ponder~

"With Christmas, it's easy to get busy with the cooking, decorating and shopping that we forget why we're doing all this in the first place. Sometimes, the very people we love get lost in the hustle and bustle of packed schedules, holiday parties and Christmas musicals. Several years ago I wrote a Christmas version of 1 Corinthians 13 to help me keep focus on what Paul deemed most important of As part of our family tradition, I pull it out and post it somewhere in our house as a reminder of what's really important during the holiday season. And since you are now part of the family, I'm pulling it our for you"

1 Corinthians 13 Christmas Style

If I decorate my house perfectly with lovely plaid bows, strands of twinkling lights and shiny glass balls, but do not show love to my family, I'm just another decorator.

If I slave away in the kitchen, baling dozens of Christmas cookies, preparing gourmet meals and arranging a beautifully adorned table at mealtime, but do not show love to my family, I'm just another cook.

If I work at the soup kitchen, carol in the nursing home and give all that I have to charity, but do not show love to ,y family, it profits me nothing.

If I trim the spruce with shimmering angels and crocheted snowflakes, attend a myriad of holiday parties and sing in the choir's cantata but do not focus on Christ, I have missed the point,

Love stops the cooking to hug a child.

Love sets aside the decorating to kiss the husband.

Love is kind, though harried and tired.

Love doesn't envy another home that has coordinated Christmas china and table linens.

Love doesn't yell at the kids to get out of the way.

Love doesn't give only to those who are able to give in return, but rejoices in giving to those who can't.

Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things and endures all things.

Love never fails. Video games will break, pearl necklaces will be lost, golf clubs will rust. But giving the gift of love will endure.
