My Grown Up Christmas List

I think we’re all familiar with the song “My Grownup Christmas List.” I don’t know about you, but I can barely get through that song without tearing up. It paints such a beautiful picture:

“No more lives torn apart
That wars would never start
And time would heal our hearts

And everyone would have a friend
And right would always win
And love would never end”

It seems the older I get, the more precious this song is. Perhaps it’s because time seems to move so much faster and you realize that childhood fantasies fall short of the real world. Maybe I’m just being naive but I wonder what the world would be like if everyone had this mindset not just at Christmas time but everyday of the year. Could it be that the world would be just a little bit brighter? Just something to think about.




The True Meaning of Christmas

The True Meaning of Christmas

Christmas time is finally here again! To some this brings a lot of joy and to others it brings out their inner Grinch. I know, because I have experienced both of those at some point. But when we stop and think about it, the first thing that Christmas should bring to mind is the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It’s his birthday and our opportunity to truly stop and think about how that baby in a manger changed our lives. So whether you are enjoying this special time with family and friends or just counting down the days until the holiday madness is over, just stop and thank God for sending his Son. It’s the greatest present we will EVER receive and that is something to smile about no matter what circumstances we are facing! God bless!
