In reality, no one needs a Christmas tree, decorations, lights, presents, and eggnog. In fact, we would do well to scale down on our “need” for these things and remember why the 25th of December is even highlighted on the calendar: to celebrate the beginning of a shift in history, the birth of Christ. History shifted for me personally when the Christmas story became my story –and my life changed.
Today I went to the bank.
The moment any of us think outside of the realm of ourselves, we will quickly find the extraordinary taking place in our lives.
I am thankful that at least this time I didn’t have to walk through business class to get to my seat.
