Today’s crisp chill in the air feels just right, for after all, ‘tis the season. ‘Tis the season for friends and family to gather and most importantly, to focus on the true meaning of Christmas.
‘Tis the season for events and gatherings that build camaraderie with neighbors, co-workers, colleagues and business associates as well. Our annual Hotel Equities’ Open House brought together an eclectic group of people who enjoyed a festive time.
This year, our entire family, including our six grandchildren, will spend time at a Costa Rica beach resort where we’ll have time to strengthen our relationships and share stories that help us know where we’ve been and who we are.
If we are not careful, Christmas can also be one of the most stressful and hectic times of the year. It’s easy to get caught up in the busyness of attending events and buying gifts that the holiday always demands. My personal challenge, and one that I share with you, is to keep things in perspective this year.
‘Tis the season to remember the real reason for Christmas: celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. When we focus on Jesus, God’s precious gift to all people, we can experience heavenly peace, unconditional love and complete joy. That’s my wish for you.
