Christmas Kindness

Here we are again...about to enter the most wonderful time of the year!!  It is still early enough to be in the planning stages where we begin to set the tone for the season, will we choose to have a fun, family filled holiday, a quiet, meaningful one, an active one, filled with all the food and celebrations?  Whatever our preferences, it affects our planning and activities.  There is so much to enjoy about this season. 

Of course we must reflect on the true meaning of celebrating Christmas which is the gift of our Lord Jesus.  That is the greatest gift and should impact all we do.  We love others because He first loved us, we give, because He gave, we have hope because He lives.

I know...all this Christmas nostalgia can quickly fade when we're rushed to go to another event, or try to find the right gift in the middle of a crowded store full of disgruntled, rude people!  We will face those times, so it is best to be prepared.  A patient heart, kind smile and a little kindness that we offer can be a great blessing to someone else.

I found a cute little resource for Christmas kindness.  This little calendar gives a daily idea to spread kindness to others.  By starting the day seeking to do something for someone else, our focus changes to being a giver rather than a taker.  And we all know...it's more blessed to give than to receive..."!!

Take a little peek at the calendar and see how easy and fun it would be to incorporate through daily live this holiday season!  Random Acts of Kindness Calendar.

Be encouraged to embrace the season and fill your corner with some Christmas Cheer!
