I hope you are singing it in your head now. I know I am. With the wonderful Christmas season upon us I hope you all are keeping your focus. It seems for me and mine we are struggling to keep the real reason we celebrate in our hearts. The economy is tough. People are cranky. There are those who say the world is ending in seven days. We are busy scheduling activities for next week, next month and next year. It’s easy to lose sight of why we are going to celebrate Christmas.
So I am encouraging you all to take some time out of your busy schedules of parties, baking, cooking and shopping to reflect and remember why we honor and celebrate December 25th each year as the birth of Christ. He may not have really been born that day but it’s right and good to honor and celebrate his birth the same as we celebrate His death and resurrection.
I will be gathering with extended family back in my hometown of Pittsburgh during the Christmas season and we decided to make Greek food this time around. I will be bringing a baked pasta dish, somewhat like the Italian lasagna dish, called Pastitsio. I will be sure to take lots of photos of the food, or should I say, I’ll have my talented son take the photos of all the Greek food. For laughs, my husband is going to walk in with a Bundt cake. I might buy some ouzo to make a toast. I wonder how many readers get the humor of either of those two things?
Take care and keep your focus. God bless you all.
