Christmas through Andrew's eyes....

As we celebrate the birth of our Saviour, Jesus, I reflect on Andrew during the Christmas season.  He doesn't get excited about all the presents.  What he gets excited about is the lights, Christmas movies, decorations, and the music.  He would be the same whether he received a single gift or not.  His big, beautiful smile and cute laughter brings us all so much joy. He receives his joy through the happiness of others.  He has taught me so much.  His excitement over others' happiness and the simple things reminds me of the CHRISTmas story.  The gift to enjoy the simple things and not concentrate on all the presents is a blessing for anyone to have.  I know of many adults who have yet to receive this gift.  Just as God's gift of His Son can't be bought, neither can Andrew's love.  It's simply there for you to accept with your heart.  Andrew's love can't be bought with gifts, it is with love and acceptance.  I think of our heavenly Father and His love.  He just wants us to accept Him.  Thank you God for my little Andrew who teaches us all so much!  He truly is a blessing!  May we all be reminded of God's precious gift of his Son during this Christmas season!  May it be the simple things that bring you joy during this holiday season.  Merry Christmas!
