Christmas Times A Comin'

Christmas Times A Comin' by Keith Cook

"For the grave cannot praise thee, death cannot celebrate thee..." Isaiah 38:18

The holidays are a time of joy for many and dread for some. Some people actually dislike holidays because they remind them of failures and problems in their lives. Because of having to connect with inlaws and family for holidays there is great pressure on husbands and wives. There are explosions of divorce, separations, remarriages, and added pressure on the children in today's society. When you add the occasional tragedies that hit us all, as well as unreal gift expectations, the holidays can be very traumatic to many households.

What can we do as Christians to help?

1. Pray for wisdom for your own plans and activities.

2. Pray for others who are going through problems or have been hit with hard times during the past few years.

3. Watch for danger signs in individual's lives. Things like sad expressions, depression, crying, worry, frantic behavior, avoiding responsibilities, excessive spending, moodiness, and anger.

4. Be available to visit, talk, share, go out with, or even just shop with those in need.

5. Take time to take care of your shopping, travel plans, family arrangements, and needs as early as possible so you can be available to relax and have fun during the holidays.

With these five things in mind you can be well prepared to celebrate because, "Christmas Times A Comin'!"
