It’s a muted Christmas, no doubt, thanks to the covid-19 pandemic. But, take heart. This is the season to do something to take your mind off your worries and find a little relief or comfort or joy.
Remember, the first Christmas was no merry event. A couple could not find a room so that the wife could deliver her child. They were driven to a stable where her baby was born. No family was around, no relatives or friends. Her visitors were strangers, the local shepherds and three kings from faraway. But, look at the song that came out of that lowly birth which is sung all across the Earth on Christmas day and every day for more than 2,000 years! A song of hope, love and life!
It’s an occasion to celebrate. Do what we can to find some enjoyment. If we don’t feel good despite the celebrations, that’s alright. Just taking part in the celebrations will make us move forwards and aid in eventual resolution. But don’t work yourself up to a climax and then hit a low the next day! Enjoy quietly!
So, have yourselves an enjoyable time, this Christmas!
