 Stress Out or Full of Joy?
God has given us 24 hours in one day to live, work, play, and sleep. During this holiday season time of the year it seems like we need a few more hours to do all of the things that we want to do.  Shop, decorate, party, attend a Christmas program and of course have a few cold ones are all activities we try to jam into our days. It can be stressful.  The Christmas season, like our lives, can either be a joyful time or a season just to get through.  The real joy of the season comes from times of giving and sharing.  Family, friends, and neighbors show a little more love that may not be apparent during the rest of the year. God loved us by sending his Son at Christmas to be our savior. It may sound too simple, repent and believe and eternal life is yours.  When the big things are taken care of, why should we stress out over the small stuff?  Because you know the reason, enjoy the season.
