It’s the hap, happiest season of all
With the kids jingle belling
and everyone telling
you be of good cheer!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
Well, wait a minute. Just what makes this the most wonderful time of the year?
Is it the presents you’ll receive? Is it the special and delicious food you’ll eat? Is it parties you’ll attend? Is it vacation from school? Is it snow? What actually makes this a wonderful time of the year?
Years ago a movie was made that has become a classic at Christmas time. It’s called It’s a Wonderful Life and is about a man named George Baily who didn’t realize just how wonderful his life was.
George learns that one life touches many through all the ways we help people. That’s what makes our lives wonderful: touching other lives, helping others.
This Advent, use your wonderful life to bless others. Here is a digital Advent calendar to help you spread love, hope, joy, and peace. Click on each day from now until Christmas for a reflection and a “microchallenge”, a small way you can take action to bring love, hope, joy, and peace to others. Even though the Advent Calendar is a Christian tradition used at Christmas time, any one of any faith can use it to help spread love, hope, joy, and peace…..to help others and yourself to live a wonderful life.
Report back here to let us know how you are creating and enjoying the most wonderful time of the year!
