Congratulations Jenifer Metzger, you won the White Christmas giveaway!!
I am so glad that you’re joining us. Every Thursday at Shari A. Miller ~ Living to Leave a Legacy, we will be talking about ways to leave a legacy for your children and those around you.
A legacy is so much more than a material possession that we leave with someone. For me, when I leave a legacy I want to leave a part of my heart. The part of my heart that combines my character, attitudes and the type of relationship I had with Jesus. I want to be faithful and worthy of this His calling, so that others might see who Jesus is by looking at the life I lived.
As I sit here typing this the only thing that illuminates the room are the lights of the Christmas tree. As I ponder about this upcoming Christmas, I know there is one thing that I do not want this years legacy of Christmas to be about. I do not want it to be about me. I don’t want my family to get caught up in the commercialism and the hustle and bustle of Christmas.
I want this Christmas to be slow and easy. I want each moment to be lived to the fullest. I want memories to be made, cookies to be baked, Advent to be read, and acts of love and kindness shown. I don’t want it to be about who gets what, or being driven mad by going into a store that’s overcrowded with shoppers who think they need the latest gadget.
I want it to be about spending time with my family. Watching the snow fall outside, while we warm up with hot cocoa as we sit by the fire and talk about the true meaning of Christmas which if Christ. To me that’s what the legacy of Christmas and family should be all about.
One of our favorite things to do every Christmas is to watch the movie White Christmas. It brings us close together and reminds us of when things were good and simple in this world. In honor of the re-launching of my blog, and since it’s the Christmas season, I will be giving away one copy of the DVD White Christmas for you and your family to enjoy.
