As we look at the decorations on the Christmas Tree, we are filled with a sense of beauty and peace.  Without the decorations on the tree it would look bare and not as pretty.

What about our hearts?  Are they decorated with the Love of Jesus?  When others look at us, do they see the Love of Jesus shining from our hearts?

My Mother told me that she always knew when I was happy, that my eyes would sparkle.  Are our hearts sparkling with Love, Joy, Peace, and Happiness? 

There are many countless people who are lonely and discouraged and they need encouragement.  We can not encourage anyone if we do not have the Love of Jesus shining brightly in our hearts.

There is a song I used to sing in Sunday School that said, "This little light of mine, I'm going to let it shine".  Let me encourage you to let others see your light shining brightly so that they may not only be encouraged but also be filled with warmth and comfort.
