Every year since the movie came out it has been a tradition to watch The Heart Of Christmas movie. I cannot recommend it enough. If you have never seen it I encourage you to watch it. Right now it is currently streaming on Netflix. It’s one of the best heartfelt ones I have ever seen and every time I watch it I’m usually crying by the time it’s over.
As I watch the movie the whole message is about cherishing the ones you love before it’s too late. Tell them you love them. Don’t live in the past or the future but live in the present and enjoy every moment.
What a beautiful reminder for us as Christmas is approaching? The heart of Christmas is something we don’t want to miss. Holidays are the times when we see family and friends the most. There’s the big gatherings and gift exchanges. It’s a time for love and memories being made.
Christmas for me is always hard. This year will be the second one without my grandma here. Celebrating the holidays are different when you loose a loved one. There will always be a piece of you missing. The pain never goes aways but with time it does get easier. It’s so easy to get caught up in all the emotions and little things. The first year was super hard for me. Traditions of things my Grandma and I would do each year didn’t happen. There would be no more making cookies together or listening to Christmas music and singing together. Nothing I wouldn’t give to tell my grandma one more time just how much I loved her. I would give her a great big hug and share her just how much she meant to me.
This Christmas I encourage you to stop what you are doing. Take a minute out of the busyness of the season and make time for those that you love. Tell them you love them. Cherish each moment you have with them. Focus on today, not yesterday and not tomorrow.
Don’t miss this moment! The heart of Christmas is about Jesus. Take a few minutes and listen to this song by Matthew West. Let’s not miss the opportunity the heart of Christmas.
Blessings, Grace Mae ❤
