Welcome to the 1st Friday of Advent! Yes, the weekend is at hand. And it’s the first weekend of the Advent Season. I think there will be a lot of shoppers out there. Lord, keep us safe.
I plan to have my fruits of the spirit with me while I’m out and about. I went shopping on Sunday, December 1. And some people appeared in a daze. There were some who looked at me and didn’t smile. Shopping shouldn’t be that bad. We should lighten up.
As I’m thinking about Christmas, it doesn’t feel like the Christmas of yesterdays. I can’t explain it. The Advent season is different from year to year. I’m not as much in the shopping mode as people are.
I don’t get “What’s In.” I mean, the latest games or whatever is out there they say to get. I have learned to get the necessities of life. Those things I think my family and friends would like. And that’s what I can afford.
I know I can’t shop for all my family members and friends. But, at least I can give a card or a gift to those who have a special part of my life. This season is about Jesus. It’s not about how many gifts we give, receive or don’t receive. It’s ALL About Jesus! Amen!
May we remember that Jesus is the reason for the season. May we not overspend. May we see the richness of giving from our hearts during the holidays. Amen.
Thanks for reading.
