Remember, Santa only has gifts that we can make, buy, borrow, or steal!
What does Santa do when he doesn’t have the gifts we need? But knows someone who does?
Gifts like love, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, courage, companionship, joy, gentleness, purpose, creativity, generosity, rest and energy? Confidence. Creativity. Support.
When we shut out the world’s consumerism and just sit in the candlelight, God blesses us with his gifts. Things happen. Amazing things. Unexplainable blessings.
Advent is basically 4 candles for the weeks before December 25. Google it! And get yourself 3 purple candles and one pink candle. Sitting still every night in this Christmas season is where the magic is happening…I always shut the lights off first. Then, the light from one match reminds me, Christ came to illuminate the dark world. In lieu of a lighter, I always use matches. Each one reminding me to be grateful for an individual who has brought light into my life.
That’s advent: the preparation and commemoration of the birth of Christ.
Santa and the Sad Snowman is a true story! It’s about snow children, Snowbully and Snowbella who ask for things like courage, compassion, and confidence. But Santa doesn’t have those gifts. Only God can give them to us. Just ask.
Don’t wait for Christmas.
“If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.”
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”
The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
