Enjoying the Season…

“…Rejoice. And again, I say, “Rejoice!…” (Phil 4:4)

Thankfulness is an important trait to build into your family — especially at the Christmas season. While the holidays provide most of us with plenty of stress points which can then lead to feelings of depression, we can make an intentional choice to be thankful instead.

Think about it!  We’re giving thanks to God and celebrating the birth of our Savior — our whole reason for living! What kind of message do we send to an unbelieving world if we’re cranky, hassled, and sad during Christmastime? Of all people, we should be the ones leading the celebrations and embracing what Christmas is all about! So, let’s all try to enjoy this Christmas season and watch how many people wonder why we’re so happy!

I’m making a choice to be more intentional this Christmas season.

  1. When I think back to when I didn’t even know about a personal relationship with Jesus and didn’t think He wanted me, the joy of the season really hits me.

  2. I appreciate the point you made about being intentional. Gratitude is truly a choice.
    Thanks Thora! = )
