I wish for you and your family a very Merry Christmas. I hope that I've been an inspiration to you this past year and I look forward to being a blessing to you and inspire you to change from the inside out in the coming New Year.
Recently my husband and the older children went out to cut down a Christmas tree. They kept searching and searching for the perfect tree, some were either too tall or too short or the branches were too sparsely ordered or scraggly looking. They soon became discouraged and were about to give up when they found the perfect tree shaded beneath some taller pine trees.
This tree now sits fully decorated in our living room bringing joy to our children this season.
It is so too in life that if we allow discouragement to set in, even though we may be so close to our goal, we could miss out the enjoyment reward for all our searching and working towards achieving our goals.
This Christmas, let us enjoy the season but keep our eyes focus on what we've set out to achieve until we have found our 'perfect Christmas tree', the achievement of our goals.
Merry Christmas to you and yours.
