Treasures to Keep

Christmas is over. The presents have been opened, the dinner has been enjoyed, loved ones have all gone home. It’s back to life as usual.

But before it all slips away and is lost in the routine of everyday, take a moment to remember - remember the looks on the faces of loved ones as they opened the gift you picked out especially for them. Remember the noise and activity of everyone together in one place. Remember the special closeness you felt with loved ones as you celebrated together and that feeling of contentment because you were in the midst of those you love and who love you. Remember the soft glow of lights, the warmth of fellowship, the taste of that special dinner.

These are the treasures of Christmas - these are the things that will last. In the days, weeks and years to come, these are the things that we can enjoy over and over again wherever we are and whatever our circumstances.

There is a little verse in the Christmas story that is often overlooked in all that happened. Luke 2:19 says, “But Mary treasured all these things, pondering them in her heart”. Mary remembered. Mary kept the treasures she had been given.

We have all been given treasures to “ponder”. Take the time to store them away carefully, just as you will store away the Christmas decorations, to bring them out again and again to enjoy.
