Making memories. There’s nothing like it. And the older I get, the more important that becomes.

Ask me what I want for Christmas, and I will struggle to tell you even one thing – unless that one thing is a memory. I guess that’s why we often say, “the best things in life are free.” There’s just nothing that can make me smile like time with my peeps.

On Saturday, members of our family rang the bell for the Salvation Army and we sang, and sang and sang. Turns out my grand kids know quite a few Christmas carols. We must’ve sung “Frosty the Snowman” thirty seven times.

Unplanned memories are special because they are, well, unexpected. Yet there are ways that we can plan times to do something with those we enjoy being with. I hope you make time to make a memory or two this holiday with those you know and maybe those you don’t. If you know are aware of someone who doesn’t have family, invite them to your house for a few hours during the holiday season and get to know their story. Sharing is caring and it will bless you as much as it does them. Who knows? By inviting a stranger in, you may meet an angel in the process!

“Don’t forget to show hospitality to strangers, for some who have done this have entertained angels without realizing it!” NLT

Something to think about.
