What if we got into “Christmas mode”? This includes times when we will be sharing a table with others
Christmas is coming. From the beginning of Advent, we will put on “in Christmas mode”. The incomparable happiness of knowing that the Son of the living God will come. It’s wonderful to see people’s reaction when I happily say, with a big smile, “Merry Christmas”.
I like this time. I live it happily, fully. I also ask you to be happy. I know that many struggle to have a good time because of the difficulties they face, loneliness, problems of all kinds.
Let’s put all our concerns and worries in the hands of the Almighty and we will have a good time, with the illusion of a child born for our salvation.
Do you have your Bible handy? Look for this wonderful prophecy in Isaiah 9:
“Because a child was born to us,
a son was given to us;
they put the king’s insignia on his shoulder
and proclaims his name:
“Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
father who does not die
Prince of Peace.”
At home, the typical Christmas aromas will soon arrive. My wife Vida waits and prepares delicious punch, rich cakes and Panamanian tamales. We sang Christmas carols and put up the Christmas tree. I love this time of year.
Have you heard the old adage, “Love comes in through the kitchen?”. He says that culinary art is about striving to give the best food to those around us, it is a beautiful experience and an expression of love. At Aleteia we could publish a book exclusively with the delicacies of the convents and the delicious recipes that we have saved for you.
We would like to share some with you.
