Reflections: Merry Christmas

Posted December 24, 2017 by Fizzy Pop in Merry Christmas, Random Thoughts / 0 Comments

As many of us are bustling about preparing to travel to or host our friends and family it’s easy to forget the bigger picture.  It’s easy to get lost in checking our shopping lists that no one has been forgotten, it’s easy to get lost in wrapping and bagging all the gifts and trinkets from our lists, it’s easy to get lost in cooking and serving our family and friends.  It’s easy to get lost in hanging the lights and lighting tree.  It’s easy to forget that so long ago the ultimate gift was literally born in a barn with no special meal, no decorated rooms, his first visitors some animals and shepherds.

From my home to yours I wish you all the joy of this Holiday Season.
