Christmas Rush- What's the Fuzz?

Christmas rush... heavy traffic, long queue, crowded places and gift-able merchandise everywhere, indeed, the feeling of Christmas rush is evident everywhere and can be felt by everyone. As for me, I have a lot of things on my mind, lots of plans for the coming celebration. But then, I was reminded to stay calm- to stay cool. I was reminded not to feel the pressure, and I was reminded to stay chill.

I used to worry a lot during this season. I worried about the gifts (obligatory feeling?), I was worried about the food. But as I grew a year older, I realized how to be contented and grateful with what I just can afford. I slowly withdraw myself from the "burden" of Christmas. What made me realize all that? Simple, it is the fact that this is NOT ABOUT US. Christmas is about Our Lord Jesus Christ who was born and more than three decades later, was hung on the cross to allow us to enjoy the beauty of CHRISTMAS as a redeemed children of God. This is ALL ABOUT HIM. That's why we should only do the things that could glorify Him! Yes, it is the season of giving, but we can give more than the material things. We can freely give our  FORGIVENESS to those who have offended us, we can give our LOVE for those whom we could consider as unlovable (as for me, some of my unruly students), we can give our TIME to our family whom we almost neglect because of the demands of our time for work. We can give ourselves for other people- our talents, skills, and concern. Christmas is a season of LOVE, a season of SHARING our happiness to everyone- how? that's where your talent, your skills and your time will be needed. No need to spend much. With just minimal expenses, the true spirit of Christmas can be experienced by each one of us.

Merry Christmas everyone!
