All I want for Christmas

This is the time of year when we make out Christmas lists โ€” things we need, or things we would like โ€” a way to make the gift-buying process a little easier for those we love. Now let me ask you: if you got everything on your list this year, would you be happy?

I would. At least for a few days, until I would have to take advantage of the after-Christmas sales. Or until New Year’s Eve, when I probably would need a new, cute top to wear. But then I would definitely be happy. Oh wait โ€” then January comes and I know I’ll need some new work-out clothes for the exercise program I start every year. I’ll let you in on a little secret. I am never satisfied. There is always something else I want.

We know Christmas isn’t really about the gifts, the lights, the tinsel. Jan wants something more, something โ€” eternal. Go read All I Want for Christmas at The View from Her.

  1. If I got everything I wanted for Christmas, I think I’d be happy for a while. At least with major purchases. Though I understand the post is talking about ultimate happiness. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Charlie:

    I hope that you’ve had a blessed and enjoyable Christmas day! Thanks for your encouragement.

    Blessings in Christ,


  3. Hi Charlie! I wanted to thank you for highlighting my post on your blog – and I’m sorry to take so long getting back to you. The whole job-hunting, temp-work thing is unfortunately cutting into my blog-reading! ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope you had a lovely Christmas.
