Add One More Thing to Your Christmas List
During the Christmas season our ‘normal list’ seems to quadruple and we wonder how will we get it all done? Our minds are so over stimulated with the next thing to do, buy, go to, remember or check off the list. At the end of the day, we exhale for a brief moment, only to re-write the list for tomorrow!
Today I invite you to add one more thing to ‘your list’. I also challenge you to make that one more thing first, on ‘your list’! That thing is a Giving Heart! I know we all have that giving heart, especially during this time of year however I am referencing a different type of giving heart. One of small deeds of kindness, love, light and laughter that may cost you next to nothing but will increase someone’s joy beyond measure!
Be on the lookout from now until the end of the year for someone to bless. Whether it’s paying for their toll on the bridge, their meal order, a $5 gift card from a local store, giving stamps out at the post office or some goody bag to brighten someone’s day. It is a gift that will make a difference and touch someone’s heart in a way that you may never know!
That is what this Season of Christmas is all about! It’s a knowing that through the glitz, the hustle and bustle and the lists…there is someone who is yearning for a helping hand. Someone who is there waiting to be recognized for their quiet need to be fulfilled.
Show Jesus’ light throughout the days ahead during this beautiful season. Brighten someone’s life with His message of hope. Be salt for the earth and a giving heart to those in need. Be on the lookout for someone to bless. When you do, get ready to also receive a sense of Peace that transcends all understanding.
We are blessed to be a blessing!
