For twenty three years of my life, I have been used to elaborate celebration of Christmas. We always allotted much time for the season: church nights, seemingly never-ending Christmas parties, bunch of gifts, the list goes on. It has always been the happiest time of the year!
For the last four years, I have celebrated the season in a faraway sandland, far from home and much different from the Christmas life I have always had. Here, I cannot feel it’s already Christmas. The roads are plain. The songs over the radio and in the malls remain the same. Offices are still open. Parties are subtle. Gifts are limited. Celebrations seem to be shorter, I haven’t even felt!
But it is okay. Christmas may just be a day but it can be celebrated at any time. Over and beyond the gifts, songs and parties, it’s a season to remember the birth of our Saviour. The whole world has shaken, the mighty One is born!
Tonight, I am celebrating with full heart! I adore Him who has been giving me all the life and love, ever beyond what I can fathom. Tonight is even more special because I celebrate it with my love.
Happy birthday, Jesus Christ! You’re always the reason, the destination and the goal. Merry Christmas everyone! May this be the happiest!
