Countdown to Christmas

by Debby Giusti

December is always a busy month, filled with shopping and wrapping and decorating the house and Christmas tree. Cards needs to be sent and boxes mailed. Some years, I am so overwhelmed with what has to be done that I’m not able to truly enjoy this season of anticipation.

Christ was born in a manger more than 2,000 years ago, and people around the globe celebrate his birth by“gifting” one another in special ways. This year, I plan to spend time focusing on the wonder of his birth and thanking God that I have the opportunity to worship him each day. I hope you can find time in your busy schedule to spend quiet moments with the Lord. As we turn to the mystery of his wondrous birth, may our anticipation and expectation grow so that this Christmas we can all experience the true meaning of the season.

As always, I pray for my readers and writer friends so I’ll be lifting you up this holiday, asking the Lord to bless you with His peace and His joy and His love.

Wishing you a Very Merry Christmas and all the best in the New Year!

Hi Edna,
Sounds like your family has the true Christmas spirit. I'm cutting down this year and enjoying every unstressed moment. Have a very Merry Christmas with your dear family!

LOL, I saw the cover with the tree laying on its side and thought, "Gee, how did my old cat get to Debby's house?"

Hi Pam,
Actually, it's Margaret's tree that falls. Had I known what the cover would be when I wrote my story, I would have crashed the tree as well! :)
