Random Thought of the Day

Merry Christmas!  Christmas is almost here and although I am 50 years old I'm still excited about Christmas time! It's just a bit different now for me than it was when I was a child. Lately I've been reflecting on how Christmas has changed for me as I've gotten older. I've found I care less (much less) about giving and receiving gifts and I care so much more about putting meaning into Christmas. I love spending time with family, reflecting on my Christian heritage, investing time in worthy causes like the Durham Rescue Mission's Christmas meal and similar events for Christmas instead of focusing on material things like I did as a child and yes, even as a young adult. My how things have changed over the years! I would really love to hear from others about how and if Christmas has changed for you. What's your Christmas Story?
