Keeping God the Main Thing!

I started listening to this podcast this morning as I decorate for Christmas. I must admit, when I began the task I most certainly was not relishing in the joy of the season. HOWEVER I have been most richly blessed by listening to EVERY episode thus far in one day. My heart has been touched in such a way that I am now excited and eager to ensure that my family and friends KNOW the real reason for this season and to be a blessing to others. Thank you Focus on the Family!! You continue to grow me as a Christian daily. May you be blessed beyond measure so you can continue to bless others and grow other’s faith!!

Disappointing

Last year I had a hard time finding my Christmas spirit. The stories the podcast shared put things in perspective and reminded me of what’s truly important at Christmas. I looked forward to hearing the stories this year but it’s now a completely different layout. The advice given highlights the negativities and selfishness... complaints about family gatherings, shopping, maintaining traditions, etc. It stoops to the shallowness it helped me escape last year.
