Christmas is the gentlest, loveliest festival of the year - and when it speaks, its voice has strong authority. - W.J. Cameron
Countedown to Christmas....two weeks left and already I can feel something magical in the air.
I was at Costco the other day...the cashier smiled and said...I'm not allowed to say this, but oh heck...I want to...Merry Christmas. Her face shone. Her smile stretched across her face. She needed to say those words...to express the joy bubbling inside her. And I loved hearing them. But as I left...I thought of what she had said first...I'm not allowed to say..
I couldn't stop thinking about that. Why was she told not to say Merry Christmas? Why couldn't she express her heart....her joy? Why wasn't she allowed to express the truth of the holiday? He is the reason we celebrate Christmas. He's what this holiday is all about. Without Him...there is no Christmas. God's gift...that gives hope...freedom...peace. Why was she told not to say the words?
Maybe it's where I come from....of what happened to me....and how He alone made a difference....reaching so far down to pull me up....but as Christmas is getting closer..I feel like that cashier....I want to shout Merry Christmas to everyone.
And so this is Christmas for weak and for strong...the rich and the poor ones....
