Christmas Gifts

Thanks to some of my friends who gave me chocolates during Christmas, when I’m trying to keep my New Year resolution to slim down. And today after the Christmas service, a few of us had gone to the Coffee Beans to chat over coffee & cakes. How sinful looking at all the cheesecakes, tiramisu and brownies in the showcase. Though I love chocolates, I try to stop myself from eating too much, but what is a few calorie of fat compared to having a wonderful time with friends, right? Haha 😉   For Christmas present, I gave one of my friends a book on Juices, Smoothies and Shakes. Seemed I have read her mind, as she said she had in fact wanted to detox by drinking fruit juices during the weekend. Hmm… seems everyone is having the same resolution for the New Year.  Wow, I’m glad indeed. Now she can have more varieties, and we could spur each other on to keep ourselves fit and healthy.

Any presents you have received this Christmas, which you have wished for? Whatever gifts we receive it’s the thoughts that are most important. And since we are celebrating Christ’ Birth on Christmas day, let us also not forget to include Him in our celebration. Christ is in Christmas. Let Him be first and foremost in our mind and heart. “It’s better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man.” (Psalm 118:8, the centre verse in the Bible. Christ is in the centre of everything.) The Author of our salvation is also the giver of our blessings. This blessing gift is very good already. May we share the gift we have from Christ. As the Lord taught us, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” (Acts 20:35)
