I could go on because that is how I was feeling this season. Blame it on many things, I didn't have the usual holiday exuberance this year. That is, until yesterday.
As I sat in the chair, Lauren gave me a festive blue package. "You can open it now or later."
NOW!In it was a candle (she knows me!) and three pretty little bags that were all Christmasy filled with yummy homemade cookies and candies. It was obvious that she had thought of me along with other friends as she bought the pretty little bags, made the goodies and festively wrapped them.
I left with a fresh new hairdo and spirit. Lighting the candle as soon as I got home, I finished decorating the house, put out the welcome flag and hung the wreath.
After all...why is Christmas?
The wise men brought Jesus gifts that had meaning. They must have thought of the significance of the Christ child to bring...
- gold - symbolic of Christ's deity
- incense - symbolizing purity
- myrrh - symbolizing his future death to give us eternal life (myrrh was used in embalming)
The angels sang to him. Shepherd's worshiped him.
