Today's Christmas Thought. By: C.C.

"This is Christmas: not the tinsel, not the giving and receiving, not even the carols, but the humble heart that receives anew the wondrous gift, the Christ. " (Frank McKibben)
Lord I pray today that you help us keep our real Christmas perspective. Give us the humility of heart to experience the holiness of this season that we are called to. Help us acknowledge the different ways that Christmas will be celebrated throughout our world. Allow us to pause and recognize the various trials that may plague other people during this time. May we give You thanks for our blessings, and praise even amidst our misfortunes. Make us sensitive and charitable in our dealings with our other brothers and sisters. I ask Lord that you continue to guide us to do Your will this holiday season. May we see in each day an opportunity to share the true wondrous gift of Jesus and look beyond the superficial representations of Christmas. (C.C.)
