“Preparing our hearts for Christmas”

December 22, 2019

Christmas is around the corner and it's the perfect time to search the best ways to celebrate this beautiful day.

Some say that the true meaning of this event is giving gifts to their loved ones, others state that it is the time to be thankful for the blessings that they have received this year; while others might simply say that it is an honor to worship the one true reason for this celebration, the birth of Jesus Christ. But for many of us, we are still looking for our own answers on what is the real importance of Christmas in our lives.

 Here are a few ways to prepare our hearts when celebrating this Yuletide Season.

 1. Help those who are in need.

There are lots of people who need one way or another. Some may need food, a roof over their heads, suitable clothes to wear, a comfortable place to stay for the night or even someone to talk to about their life. Giving a helping hand to those who need it most may be one of the ways to spread the spirit of love this time of year.

 2. Promise to make one good deed every day.

If you really want to be mindful and invest in something really meaningful, then make it a point to make one good deed every day. A simple deed can make a huge difference in somebody’s life. Let us remember that an act of goodwill will always spark hope into another.

 3. Gift to Show your affection

Make sure that no one is missed!! Gift everyone you know closely regardless of the distance the two of you have. It does not matter what is the material value of your gift but, it will definitely bring a smile to their faces.

 4. Spread the teachings of Jesus to others.

This is the perfect time to present the reason of celebrating Christmas, Jesus Christ. The one who teaches us good examples in any walks of life. It is also an opportunity to teach about His life work to children and introduce Him into their young hearts. Let us also remember that faith will always create ripples of miracles into everyone.

 5. Say Bye-Bye to hate and grudges

This is a great time to send goodbyes to all the resentments and hate that you hold onto throughout the year. Let go of all the negatives and extra baggage that will drag you down. Always look into the brighter side of life. This is a period of embracing within our lives to make it worthwhile.

 6. Be grateful for all the blessings that you have received.

Christmas is truly a magical season. You can even feel it deep into your bones. It brings love, hope, faith and peace among people. This is the time where we can reflect on the lives that we have. We may be humans who are leading different paths in life but at the end of the day, one thing that will truly matter is having a thankful heart.
