The Christmas Season is upon us. It is the time of year when we recognize the Savior’s birth. It is a time for reflecting on the Savior and the importance of his arrival in mortality.
It had been prophesied for thousands of years that he would be born into the world. So that there would be no mistake, it was foretold that he would be born of a virgin named Mary.
After all these years, we have lost the true meaning of his birth. We recognize it only as an overly materialized day where we give presents that are of questionable value, or of no value at all.
There is still time. Why not give of yourself this Christmas? Be of service to someone in need. The elderly in your neighborhood or in your community would love to have you think of them and share some of your time with them. Many in the nursing home facilities don’t have visitors throughout the year and they would be especially happy to have someone come and sing Christmas carols to them.
If you are not into singing, I am sure there is someone who needs to run some errands and would be excited to have you come and take them. There are few blessings greater then providing service to others, especially if those we provide it for are unable to do it for themselves. Remember, this is the season to give a little of yourself, which will put you more in harmony with the true meaning of Christmas.
I have made it my goal in life to help every Baby Boomer finally become who they were meant to be.
