So much to do and so little time! I’ll bet that’s the way some of you feel about Christmas. People run themselves ragged trying to get everything done–to the point that they’re in a foul mood throughout the Christmas season.
In an old “Peanuts” cartoon, Lucy asked Charlie Brown,”Did you ever know anyone who was really happy—–“. But before she could finish her question, Snoopy comes dancing into the next frame and continues dancing through the frames that followed. In the last frame Lucy finishes her question, “Did you ever know anyone who was really happy–and was still in their right mind?”
No doubt there are those who think that a normal person can’t really enjoy the Christmas season, with all its attendant problems. Show them they are wrong! Maintain a sweet spirit through the Christmas rush and it will make an impression on others. As Christians we should determine in our hearts to show others the difference that Christ makes. “Rejoice in the Lord” throughout the season and others are sure to notice. That’s the least we can do.
