“Baby Jesus is lost” that was my comment to my friend as she called to ask me to a Christmas breakfast.
“Well Dixie, does this happen often, do you often lose Jesus?”
She was asking in jest but actually my baby Jesus from my manger scene was missing and it was driving me crazy trying to find him in all my many Christmas decoration boxes!
The truth is Jesus is never lost and he never leaves me but this little episode reminded me to stop and take a moment to ask him to forgive me when I lose him. Yes I did find him for my manger but I can’t help but wonder if this was God’s way of gently reminding me that Jesus is the reason for the season.
Does anyone else out there need a reminder……give yourself some grace, I know God does! May you enjoy the holiday to the fullest and when the stress comes on may you remember this beautiful birthday is once a year AND Jesus is the reason for the season and it is a beautiful special time, so enjoy it to the fullest and be blessed by not losing Jesus but finding him shining in your heart and others hearts as well.
Merry Merry Christmas and here’s to all your possibilities!
