….the hands of my husband, cleaning up the dishes after our belated Thanksgiving meal;
….the smiling faces of the library staff, as we drop off a small tin of candy and wish them a merry Christmas;
….the eyes of the grocery store clerk, lighting up as she talks of how she’s finished her Christmas shopping early this year;
….the feet of the bag boy, walking beside me to our car as we pick up our familiar chatter about the latest sports headlines;
….the heart of my daughter, overflowing with generosity as she spends most of her money on a present she knows will thrill her sister.
The spirit of Christmas can fill our minds and overflow to those around us, but it only comes because HE came – the One who loved the people of this world more than anything else and demonstrated it by becoming one of us and giving the greatest gift ever conceived of, yea, His very life.
May your Christmas be all it can be because of Him.
