Go ahead. Fill in the blanks. Like that word game, Mad Libs. You have to think of some great adjectives, nouns or silly words to create the silliest and funniest story ever. Well, we can do this here too.
Tis the season to be (frustrated)!
Tis the season to be (left alone)!
Tis the season to be (getting wasted)!
I think these are more than enough to give you an idea where I'm going with this one.
Look, I've been there too. I completely understand you if you are feeling down at the moment. Maybe you lost your job, your kids are sick and you've had to take an unpaid leave, or things between you and your significant other and really not well. I believe everyone at one time or another has fallen into the Bah Humbug feeling for the holidays.
Good News, though.
You and I don't have to stay there. Use this moment and motivate yourself to remove the present word choices at the top and replace them with some new ones. Can I help, again?
Here we go...
Tis the season to be (thankful)!
Tis the season to be (thinking of others who are less fortunate and look for ways to bless them).
Tis the season to be (dancing away to some 50s or 60s music!)
Tis the season to be (playing the PS3 or Wii with your kids) even if you don't know what to do,
Tis the season to be (laughing)!
Tis the season to be (redecorating and cleaning)!
Tis the season to be (hugging and kissing)!
Come on, You can think of some better ones because only you know what is going on inside of your mind and heart. Let's kick Old Man Scrooge out the door and welcome the joy and the power of a renewed mind that decides to transform their atmosphere with life and love!
Don't you know God has something great for you and you don't need for it to be Christmas to begin experiencing something wonderful in your life!
Don't wait until Christmas Eve or Christmas Day to allow great things to happen in your midst. Love came down, not on Christmas, but Love came down one day for you and me and gave His Life as the greatest gift of all!
