“Christmas in our Hearts” is one of my most favorite carols of all time. I’m sure, you, too. If not this particular piece, most likely, you love one of the hits of Jose Mari Chan.
Since the start of the “BER” months, his voice is our constant date in the air, may it be in the mall, department store or over the air waves.
When I was a kid, I can recall that I couldn’t wait to see what Santa had brought me on Christmas Eve. My little heart was just so excited that I could barely sleep.
But as I grew older, I realized that Christmas is so much more than I understood as a child. To my dismay, Santa, isn’t really true at all.
But then again, as I grew older than older, I realized again that there is Santa in every one of us, when we do good, when we give more, we become Santa in the eye of other people.
I am blessed to work in a company where generosity is a universal language. And being generous is not only on Christmas Day, but every day. Residents from all Barangays of Bataraza are enjoying gifts from Coral Bay Nickel Corporation thru its Social Development and Management Program and Corporate Social Responsibility projects.
Going back to Christmas, it is of course okay to be excited and anticipate merry-making activities with our loved ones, with people in our respective communities.
I’d pray we’d all be child-like again in our anticipation, of expecting something very good coming our way. This season, and everyday for that matter, we should be as excited about Jesus as the angels were, “Oh thanks be to God for His Gift, (His precious, indescribable, inexpressible, free Gift),”
With great anticipation, children stay awake on Christmas Day to find out what gifts they’ve received. And as Christians, that’s how we should be…like children in anticipation! Just because Jesus has already come doesn’t mean the anticipation should stop. Jesus is the gift that keeps on giving!
Remember when He told the woman at the well, “If you only knew the gift of God..” (John 4:10)
