Avoiding The Christmas Blues!

I was listening to KKLA the other night and Frank Pastore was saying how he was fighting traffic and long lines earlier in the day and found himself loosing his Christmas MoJo. So he asked callers to call in with their most memorable or favorite Christmas gift.

As I listened to so many people talk about being thankful for blessings not purchased in stores my heart began to warm. Listening to testimony of God's hand of blessing in the lives of others began to do a Christmas miracle in my own heart. My MoJo was growing....

So I felt led to call and share my favorite Christmas memory. It was when we received my middle son back from a near fatal car accident. We spent 2 1/2 months in the hospital burn ward with him spending time sitting at his bedside. Then I will never forget spending that Christmas in the Arrowhead Burn Center with my family of five wearing blue gowns and being thankful for our family being together. Also, I will never forget how our church family supported us with gas money, food, prayer, time, shoulders to cry on, and anything we needed.

Come to think of it....The five of us have never spent one Christmas a part from each other...but it was that Christmas that will always come to mind when I start loosing my Christmas MoJo.

How about you? If you find yourself loosing your joy and forgetting about the Greatest Gift and the Reason for the Season...Think back on the one who gave you life and remember how He has blessed you with His Son Jesus Christ....and soon your heart will warm and you too will find your Christmas MoJo back in action....

That is a beautiful testimony Pastor Dave. I remember this time quite vividly. I also thank the Lord for Andrew's recovery. He is a nice young man. Merry Christmas to you and the family.
