Besides that fact that I cherish the time with my family...enjoying a good movie in the morning...spending time with the 4-legger kids, I felt deeply with a strong desire from my heart to give thanks throughout the day today. I felt the love from Christ and God when I gave thanks to the food and the gift of being alive. I do not necessarily have the desire to decorate for Christmas/holidays this year. I felt the peace and love. I did not think much of Santa or anything else like how I used to. I was really thinking about the birth of Christ (although Dec 25 was not the actual birthday for Christ) and how he lived his life.
As I express this gratitude throughout today and I just came home from a simple dinner, I saw this post on Facebook by one of my friends. This is exactly how I feel today..and I want to be this way everyday. Having Christ-like compassion will be a true blessing from God. With Christ within all of us, we find peace, love, joy, and strength.
Merry Christ-MAX everyday!
