Her thoughts — Tis the Season; I don’t mean the midterms

Tis the season and I’m not talking about the midterm elections although they are important. I want to thank the many readers who read The Charlotte Gazette and take a little time to read my column. Your words of encouragement are a blessing and truly a gift. Looking forward to 2023 discoveries.

It’s hard to believe that the Advent season is soon to be upon us as well as the season for honoring Christ’s wondrous birth. As Christmas approaches we should remember why we celebrate the holiday. We do so to honor His coming down to Earth as a child to bring hope and light into this world. He is God who was manifested in human form to bring peace to all taking on our pains and hurts. We demonstrate that love when we share the Good News with others, lending a helping hand sharing in the Christmas spirit.

In addition, many will trim the trees, bake cookies, cook a scrumptious meal, sing carols-some sacred, others secular and attend church services. Let’s not forget those who may not be able to do many of these activities. Moreover, we can share what we have with these individuals by showing them the Christmas spirit. Be kind, loving and live peaceably with one another.

In conclusion, I pray we do these acts of love and kindness. Enjoy Christmas, stay safe and share in the miracle of Jesus’s birth. The strength of His light and love holds power now as it did over 2,000 years ago.
