A Christmas Lesson
My husband's uncle and wife announced that they would come and spend Christmas with us. I was NOT happy. Why would they come when I was so sick? My rebellion took the place of "no gift for them" kind of attitude. When we opened our gifts Christmas Eve, the aunt had given me this bear decoration. Not a big gift by any means but it really put me into my place. It reminded me that family is precious. No matter whether you want them there or not!! Lord, may I be humble this season! Remind me that YOU are the reason for the season. Not my own selfish desires. The aunt died of cancer several years ago and the uncle was gone before her. No opportunity to make amends in my mind. Just this small reminder every year when I decorate.
May this Christmas season remind you to be humble and thankful!
