We love a lot of things: we love football season, we love chocolate, we love Starbucks, we love a good book, our friends, a good workout, and Christmas time. I love many things in life as well. But perhaps love isn’t the proper adjective to describe my feelings for such temporary things. I believe that real, deep, authentic love is lived out through sacrifice and deepens with time and intention invested.
This Christmas we love many of the good things surrounding us, and that is a wonderful thing! Loving the festivities, cookies, Christmas morning, gifts, family time, and Christmas cards is an amazing feeling. However, let us not forget the action of love as a humble, ordinary baby being born demonstrated over 2,000 years ago with a purpose to change the world and love each of us despite ourselves. May having heard or experienced this Ultimate Love enable you to express love, show love, and receive love this coming Christmas!
In body, mind, and spirit,
