A real Christmas is sharing your blessings with others less privileged than you.
Christmas is all about sharing your joy and blessings with others!
Recently I heard over a christian radio channel the story of a grandmother which brought tears to my eyes.
This grandmother was very lonely and she had no relative to spend the Christmas day with and the thought of spending the Christmas day all by herself made her feel very painful and very depressed. So she decided to go on social media and invite herself to any family who are willing to receive her as their guest. She also mentioned in the comment that she can cook for them and also bring gifts for their grand children. She was anxiously waiting to hear from somebody that she is welcome to their home. Instead to her unpleasant surprise she got some unexpected comments like.... Why do you want to live off of others and Christmas is all about family celebrations! so do you want to be an intruder??? Well after reading those heart breaking comments she finally put her comment on the Christmas day on social media which read like this....
"Thanks for one more shot of pain!!!
Friends it is exciting to have all the fun we want to have on a Christmas day but are we taking a pause to think of all the people who are less privileged than you and me and have we taken that extra mile to make their Christmas joyful and memorable! It does not have to be finances. There are different ways you can make somebody's Christmas joyful and memorable. Think about it next Christmas if you did not have a chance to do it this Christmas!
This was our best Christmas as we as a family could share our blessings with most poor and less privileged people in Kenya, Tanzania, and India by giving them a delicious Christmas meal. I want to specifically thank my husband, our children and their spouses and my friend teacher Mrs. Teisa Auvaa who all went an extra mile to make this happen. It is my sincere prayer and desire that God may enable my family and my friends to do more every Christmas than the year before going forward.
Merry Christmas 2019
