Christmas is in the details. So is all of life.
The excitement of a child sharing his Christmas list.
Preparation of food and baking batches of homemade cookies.
Wrapping gifts with sparkly red ribbon to match the paper, and tying on nametags lined with glitter.
Christmas is in addressing each envelope and sealing it with a snowflake sticker.
It’s in laughter and celebrations and a hug from a good friend. One who wishes you a merry season filled with blessings and prosperity.
It’s in the peacefulness when the only things lit throughout the house are twinkling lights and the fireplace.
Christmas is in buying a warm coat for a child you may never meet.
Sending goodie-filled boxes to troops who won’t come home for the holidays. Shopping for a blanket to give someone who is in need of a Secret Santa.
Christmas is in the anticipation during the quietest daybreak of the year, just before kids are up and gifts are unwrapped.
It’s in the time curled up in front of a heartwarming movie. The giggles and a quick kiss under mistletoe.
Christmas is in the moment baby Jesus is laid in the family’s manger scene.
What details make your day?
