Christmas what does it mean to me?
Love is the first thing that comes to mind , God loves us so much he sent his son to save the word through him.
The rush to buy gifts food and make arrangements for the big day are on a massive commercial money making scale.
It’s ugly and sad, It’s not what Christmas is about and never will be.
The greatest gift we can give to one another is love .
Love is not like other gifts we give, it’s special priceless and beautiful.
Often when you give love you get no response from from person receiving it, not a hug and thank you or even a smile .
I have given my love openly and freely to the fostered children that have been a part of our family , and it’s a gift that just keeps giving it’s so very very precious from the moment I hold the children in my arms to the time I let them go it’s love that counts .
I pray that I planted enough love in their hearts that when or if they want to find gods love they will recognise it as love and be able to start their own journey of faith.
Giving a gift that does not want to be given is not easy .
A gift that gets pushed back and rejected , a gift they are to afraid to unwrap as they are scared of what they might feel when they open it.
It’s a gift they have been given many times before only to have it taken away again and again .
Refusing the gift is the way they cope. But that’s not a reason not to give it.
Loving damaged children hurts but all children need love , when I gave my love to these wonderful special children my faith grew and I was never alone as I had gods love every step of my journey and their is no greater love than the love of god.
So this Christmas please pray for those adults and children that are not loved and are to scared to love, and fear love so much they reject it and hurt and push those away that reach out to help them.
Every child needs to be loved
Every child needs and a future .
Help those that find love so scary they push it away
Allow them to let your love into their hearts .
Thousands of children around the world go to bed cold hungry and scared every night.
When they awake in the morning nothing has changed for them, please show them love and kindness offer them hope and a future full of love and hope.
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
