This Christmas

This Christmas:

  • Give the gift of verbal affirmation.  Tell people why you love them.
  • Don’t be uptight about schedules.  More Christmases are ruined because people are worried about being late.
  • Give grace to people who are late.
  • Get down on the floor and play with a child.
  • If you get a chance to hold a baby, do it.
  • When you hear the preacher trying to say something new about the greatest story ever told, pray for him.
  • Some of your gifts represent significant sacrifices.  Show appreciation – write thank you notes.
  • Get some rest.
  • Read the Christmas Story to yourself, out loud.
  • Go to a Christmas Eve Service.
  • If you get a chance, stop by a barn and smell Jesus’ first bedroom.
  • If you see someone in cemetery standing by a grave, pray for them.
  • Chances are good that someone will burst into tears, get angry, or lose it over the holidays.  Listen, don’t fix.
  • Eat something good.
  • Tell God “thank you” for the greatest gift of all.
