Yesterday was one of those days that I found myself being humbled by simple beauty and love. My mom is a pianist and performs for professional dance companies, choirs and churches around the area. Yesterday she invited me along for a small Christmas choir production that her church was putting on at a local senior center. They were missing a few last minute performers so the director asked if I could join in. At first I was hesitant because, well, I'm not the best of singers. And there were instruments people, I had to play chimes!! Talk about last minute pressure. Luckily for me I took 15 years of dance so I was pretty confident in my rhythm abilities... The music started and all the little old ladies and little old men started singing along. My heart just about melted. As we started singing "I'll Be Home for Christmas" there was this one woman in particular, sitting by herself in the corner, who stood out to me as she mouthed all the words to the song. She walked up to us afterwards, shook each of our hands, and walked slowly back to her room. I'm telling you, I almost died! This time of year is my favorite. I love the music, the movies, the lights, the spirit, and the presents don't hurt either. But sometimes I think we all can forget what the true meaning of Christmas is all about, our Savior. I hope that this Christmas we all can have him in our hearts and do as He would do and help bring joy to all his people around the world.
So what things do you have planned up your sleeve to spread the spirit of Christmas?
