Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire
Then one Thanksgiving Day Betty and I were invited to someone's house for Thanksgiving Dinner. It was an Italian family, so it wasn't a Thanksgiving dinner. It was a Thanksgiving feast! At one point someone brought out a cookie sheet out of the oven with these round objects on it. I didn't know what they were so I asked. Everyone laughed at me, and someone said, "Don't you know? Those are Chestnuts!" I felt like an idiot, but I ate one and I liked it!!
Christmas is a lot like those Chestnuts. There are a lot of people out there who don't know what it is all about. But if they were to find out boy would they love it! First of all, take a few moments today and thank God that you can experience the real life and love of Jesus. His gift to you every day. Take a few minutes to embrace His love in your life.
PRAY: Dear Jesus, thank You for this day and Your love. Thank You that I know You with all my heart. I am asking for Your help today. Help me to share Your love with someone who doesn't know you at all. Help me to share Christmas with someone today. AMEN!
