December Newsletter

Christmas Time is many people’s favorite time of the year! I am no different! I love the winter air, the spirit of people around me and, of course, the birth of our Lord. This Christmas season, I want to reflect on the idea of maintaining a grateful attitude. Last month, our devotional was about Thanksgiving, this month, it’s about keeping that attitude and bringing it into the new year. Attitude is a constant choice we are faced with. We can choose to live gratefully or we can choose to get stuck on the little things. The holidays don’t just bring a spirit of giving but many frustrations as well. “It takes forever to get anywhere.” “Why do I need to keep my receipt out at Wal-mart?” We get the opportunity to NOT get caught on these things during this time of year since we have Christ. What a perfect time to really reflect Christ’s love to the world!
