A Different Kind of Christmas

We have a “different kind of Christmas” this year.  Many of you, for many reasons, are experiencing the same thing.  Ours is my illness and COVID risks.  Many of you have lost loved ones, and my heart breaks for you.

This year we decorated a bit different. My snowman collection is sitting in different places. Our large Christmas tree is not up.  Instead, we have two smaller trees and a passed down Dickens Village.

We won’t see our one and only grandchild…my emotions are a bit messy.

George Bailey

It’s that time of year…one of our favorite Christmas movies..”It’s A Wonderful Life”is being watched by many.

Remember when George was a little boy? He saved his brother and gave up hearing in one ear and future dreams when Harry came back from college. But he also saved someone else’s life….the pharmacist, Mr. Gower.

Mr. Gower lost his son and ended up filling an incorrect prescription. George did not deliver the medicine, knowing that they were incorrect. And Mr. Gower hit his bad ear. And George took it and said he understood. He kept the secret…and saved Mr. Gower’s career.

You know the story….

Sacrifice.

Nothing but sacrifice. He laid down his life for those he loved and cared for…and he did it over and over throughout his entire life.

George was human and it all kind of piled up on him, like it has many of us. And the Father reached out to prove how wrong George was about his wasted life…

I believe He still does that friends. If we just listen. He loves us, we are valuable. Christ laid down His life for us….so we might live.

Maybe that’s why “It’s a Wonderful Life” resonates with so many of us.  We understand how George felt, and we rejoice when we see just how much he is truly loved.

That kind of love, that kind of sacrifice….is JESUS.
