We love the musical Fiddler on the Roof, and one of our favorite songs is, Tradition! There’s something about doing meaningful things over and over again that brings stability and security to a relationship.
I started a traditional Christmas gift for Tom years ago, when I realized there really wasn’t much that Tom needed or wanted for Christmas. I decided to find a need in the church or community and provide that need on his behalf. I would write out what I had done, fold it up and place it in a special silver ornament to be opened first thing on Christmas morning. Usually there would be tears, followed by gratefulness to God for allowing us to be a part of answering someone’s prayer in such a meaningful way.
This Christmas why not look for a way to give of your time and/or money to another in need. You could do this together or alone as a surprise, like I’ve done in the past. It’s a great way to show your love by demonstrating it to a world that has forgotten what true love looks like.
