"Maybe Christmas doesn't come from a store, maybe Christmas perhaps means a little bit more." - Grinch
In the book she talks about something called Eucharisteo which means to Give Thanks, and when the word is broken down, it includes the greek word for Grace as well as Joy.
It got me thinking about Christmas and the Grinch quote.. Christmas isn't about gifts, or cookies or parties or elf on the shelf.. it is about being Thankful for the greatest gift of all.. Jesus!
So as the Christmas season goes into full swing let's remember to slow down and make time to say give Thanks to God for the gift of His Son, and then take note of everything around us that we have to be grateful for.
I think that this is the best way to find the true Joy in Christmas.
