Years ago, around Christmastime, I was traveling in
a neighborhood not necessarily looking for homes decorated
with Christmas lights, but I did notice the lights. One house stood out
because it was outlined with lights around the structure of the home
and other decorative lights in the yard. This house had more lights
than the norm.
After looking for awhile, I looked up on the roof top and saw a cross.
This thought occurred, if I had not looked up and saw the cross,
I would have missed the cross. Even more so, the thought occurred,
this is how it is at Christmastime. There’s often much hype around
the season others do not take time to reflect or honor the
significance of the season.
Whether you’re sipping on hot chocolate with the family around
the fire, or sitting around the fire roasting chestnuts, beyond the
lights and glimmer, let’s not forget the true meaning for this season.
When all the gifts are opened, family from far or near are gone, it is
never wrong or too late to take time to reflect and see beyond
