I hope everyone had a blessed Christmas. I also hope that sometime during the hectic holiday season you found time to reflect and enjoy the true meaning of Christmas…Jesus. Maybe even gave Him a gift?
With Christmas running right into the New Year’s celebration, I thought it would be fun to share a great idea with all of you. Jill Jones shared this activity with us at a Sunday School Christmas party. Her daughter had shared it with her earlier. This year, as you celebrate New Years, instead of making resolutions that you know you won’t keep anyway; try making a “Top Ten” list. Jill’s daughter and her husband do this every year on their anniversary; but I thought New Year’s would be a great time to start this also.
As you celebrate with your family or friends discuss the years “Top Ten” most important events that happened in your lives. It could be weddings, births, deaths, accomplishments, disappointments, or anything worthy of a top ten list. It’s a great conversation starter and wonderful time to reflect over the year. Rachel, Jill’s daughter, writes these down and keeps a notebook from year to year.
My prayer for all of you this New Year…"The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine on you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.”(Numbers 6:24-26)
