Merry Christmas!

remington-12-2016Our Littlest Angel, Remington.

Oh my! This is truly my absolute, unequivocal, favorite time of the year! I’m sitting here watching White Christmas….again. I could star in it from all of the times I’ve watched it over the years. The house is decorated, with a tree in every, yes every, room. Truth be told, the trees aren’t all big, but hey, it’s the thought…right?

With all of the outward trappings of this season, let me make it perfectly clear from this Elf…the season is about Jesus Christ. It is in celebration of His birthday. It’s a time for reflection, for looking and I mean SEARCHING, for the good that can be found in life. This is the time of year that it brings out the absolute best in people, and unfortunately, the worse. I just pray, if you’re reading this, that you do some soul searching about “What Would Jesus Do”, then do the same. Nope, we’re not all perfect, we’re only human, but be the best human you can be….one Random Act Of Kindness at a time. Smile a little more, give an extra hug, say something kind to someone even if they don’t deserve it. Your attitude and actions can be the turning point in someone’s life, even if you’re not there to witness it.

Martina McBride sings a phenomenal song, “Do It Anyways”. Take this song to heart and let it be your mantra this Christmas season.

Do It Anyways

You can spend your whole life buildin’
Something from nothin
One storm can come and blow it all away
 Build it anyway

You can chase a dream
That seems so out of reach
And you know it might not ever come your way
Dream it anyway

God is great but sometimes life aint good
And when I pray
It doesn’t always turn out like I think it should
But I do it anyway
I do it anyway

This worlds gone crazy
And it’s hard to believe
That tomorrow will be better than today
Believe it anyway

You can love someone with all YOUR heart
For all the right reasons
And in a moment they can choose to walk away
Love em anyway

God is great but sometimes life aint good
And when I pray
It doesn’t always turn out like I think it should
But I do it anyway
Yeah I do it anyway, yeah,

You can pour your soul out singin’
A song you believe in
That tomorrow they’ll forget you ever sang
Sing it anyway
Yeah sing it anyway, yeah, yeah

I sing
I dream
I love anyway, yeah.

Remember, it costs not a thing to have a dream….so dream BIG. Merry Christmas and God bless! Deb

  1. What a great post Deb! You are absolutely right with what Christmas is all about. I hope as a whole this country can get back to that and saying “Merry Christmas!”

    Thank you for this post and I know I’ll be saying it again but,



  2. Love the movie, White Christmas, never can seem to catch it on TV… Your words ring so true! I need to get back to basics & slow down & enjoy the season. As my Pastor says, “it’s not our birthday”! Merry Christmas to you and all of yours!

    1. Julie,
      I think most of us need to get back to the basics and slow down….smell the roses, watch the clouds, just appreciate all that’s around us! Your Pastor is so right, it’s Jesus’ birthday, and the best gift we can give to Him is to love each other! Merry Christmas!!!
