It is very easy to forget the true meaning of Christmas during this busy time of year. Holiday parties, baking, decorating, wishing for snow, scrambling to buy presents, etc. I am just as guilty of all of these things as well. I want to remind myself and others that the true meaning of Christmas is love. John 3:16-17 says, "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him." The true meaning of Christmas is the celebration of this incredible act of love.
Every year I usually adopt a family though the 98.1 KUDL program. It makes my heart happy to give back to a family who truly deserves it. Last year I asked my photography clients to share a story of someone who was extremely deserving this time of year, for the chance to be selected to receive a free photo shoot, along with some Christmas gifts on their wish list. The person I chose was the mother of four who had welcomed her parents, two sisters, her brother, and grandmother into her home because they lost their home to a fire. This year, I chose KC PAWS as my "family" to adopt because they are such a wonderful rescue organization who truly runs their business with their hearts and deserves special attention and really could use many more donations then they currently receive.
I encourage you, and not only during the holiday season, to open your heart to help others in need and always be thankful for your blessings in life. You really never know when life could change in just an instant.
