Tis the Season…

Christmas is getting closer and closer each day. This wonderful holiday that seems to be the brightest and most happy due to the families coming together and the birth of our Savior. So why is it also known as the most depressing time of the year?

How could someone be so depressed on the day of Jesus’ birth? Have you ever thought to yourself that maybe people are so sad because they wallow in the pity of what’s negative in their life? For example, maybe someone lost a loved one during this time, or maybe finances seem to overwhelm them because they can’t afford to give their family a good Christmas. Well I have three words for you. It’s. Not. Over.

I can relate to the sadness during the holidays seeing as I lost my 23 year old cousin at this time, but I still enjoy Christmas with a smile on my face. Why? Because it’s the day that my Savior was born for crying out loud! No matter what life throws at me, I can still keep a smile on my face. The whole purpose of Christmas is to celebrate the day that Jesus Christ was born. That was the start of a beautiful ministry and the reason why we are all here today! So even if you don’t get the gifts you wanted or don’t have the family you wish you had with you, you can still celebrate because God has never left. He’s the greatest gift anyone could ever ask for! Be happy!

Christmas comes and goes, but Jesus will always be the same.

I know this article was kind of short, sweet, and to the point, but I just wanted to get the whole purpose of Christmas out there before it got here. It’s all about Him, not us. So instead of waking up Christmas morning and opening presents and going about your day, take a little time out to kneel down and give God a little present by thanking Him for coming into your life and blessing you so abundantly even if you don’t realize it. Don’t take life for granted. It’s such a beautiful thing.

Merry Christmas and God bless you and your family on that special day!
