Happy Birthday Jesus:)
Greetings to One and All I came in peace seriously (heh)
My name is Joe., and I would like to share my Christmas experience with you
(Too late to turn back- NOW READ!)
Well, just like any other Christmas that I celebrate in my country,
Malaysia, I’ve always wanted snow falling to the ground., and
to enjoy the warmness beside the fireplace with a hot cup of cocoa or Milo
(ehehe) Somehow, I guess that will never happen.
I was involved in my church Christmas play, and I was the director. It was
really hectic, and I was frustrated, even blaming everyone for electing me
to take up this position. What? Directing a bunch of teenagers that hardly
listens and putting less effort in the play? I heard you ask. Sadly yes.
I asked God, why am I stucked in this position. There was no answer. Oh yes,
definitely there are people in my church that have helped me but I guess
that wasn’t enough. Frankly I wanted more than that, but it never came. The
fellowship, support and encouragement, it just wasn’t there.
But on the other hand, I began to look at another perspective, how God has
blessed me by making me, all the actors and actresses closer to each other.
When Christmas Eve approached, Mark Lai[my very good friend] and I had to go to
one of my friend’s place to get some props done, and later that night, we
had our supper together. We really had a wonderful time, filled with
laughter & sharing. We truly enjoyed it.
When I come back from the hearty supper, it was quiet and my family members
were already fast asleep. I went to my room, sat down, and quietly wished
Jesus a Happy Birthday. For I know, Jesus, the one that I believed for the
past 9 years was born right here on earth to die for all of us. I really
love Him and I am thankful for what He had done for me and all the people on
earth. No matter how commercial Christmas has become, what really matters is
how we celebrate it in our hearts, and when we share it sincerely, God will
do His part in sharing the true meaning of Christmas to us. May God bless
you and may your Christmas be as meaningful this year and every other
