Perhaps because I’m getting older. Perhaps because so many of my dear loved ones have already passed away – gone home to Heaven. Perhaps it is that hours, days, weeks and months seem to be flying by so fast.

I have come to appreciate what truly is precious to me.

When I was a young woman, I thought I knew what I wanted in life. Some of these  included ‘things’. I thought if I had….or if I were…. I’d be happy.

Happiness doesn’t come from things or how you may appear.

Happiness comes from being content with who, where, and with whom you are.

“I would rather be what God chose to make me than the most glorious creature that I could think of; for to have been thought about, born in God’s thought, and then made by God is the dearest, grandest, and most precious thing in all thinking.”
— C.S. Lewis

While we’re into this Christmas season there’ll be a lot  for us to do and a lot that will need our attention. In the midst of this, I hope to enjoy each precious moment with my family…enjoying our time together decorating our Christmas tree. Not worrying if it’s perfect, but making memories.

Today, I am contemplating The Heart of Christmas.

The heart of giving is love. It is the greatest gift ever given.

This is what’s important. This and moments and memories are the values, the treasures in our lives that will last.
