© 2020 HOLDING HOPE
I was at the mall with my girls a few weeks ago. It was so busy that we could hardly get through the aisles in JCPenney. I loved every second of it. As Scrooge would say- I'm a "Christmas lunatic". The lady next to me was on the phone talking to her husband about a gift and her mom was next to her, chiming in and saying she could 'get it for him now or give him cash.' I thought about all the people out Christmas shopping and how gifts are such a huge deal this time of year. As I looked around at the throngs, my heart got heavy. Do they know about THE GIFT? In all the fun Christmas craziness, do I take the time to think about THE GIFT like I should? It reminded me of the story I posted yesterday (that I had shared two years ago) about my baby Jesus that had gone missing and it's still the same message today. Is Jesus the most important gift of all in your life, and in your home? Tomorrow morning millions of people will wake up to presents under their tree. Excitement and love will fill our homes and hearts. Let's not forget that feeling in our new year. Let's strive to remember that every day is a gift and continually seek Our Savior among the many presents He gives us that money can't buy. Merry Christmas and so much love to you all!!
