That day arrived.
I wished that the day had disappeared from the calendar.
I wished that time was the lead quickly.
I pretended to live as if this day does not exist.
I pretended to ignore all the “Merry Christmas” from my Twitter timeline.
But it was useless.
Such “expected” day appeared.
Such “expected” day that just remember my solitude and scarcity.
24th was not special to me, much less “magical.”
24th was not significant in any way.
It was just another day in my chaotic and lonely life.
It was just a day of noise and false joy.
I confess that the day no longer cared to me.
I confess that the day had no sense to me.
The world seemed to enjoy it but I just wanted to circumvent it.
The world seemed to have fun but I was in crisis.
It was the worst Christmas of the 21st century.
“Merry Christmas” they shouted in social networks.
“Happy Holidays” published on Facebook.
While their children burned their money spending on firecrackers.
While business motive me to buy “last minute gifts.”
Many were waiting with joy but not me.
I had no money, no friends and was alone.
I had no gifts, no health and was extremely boring.
I had no reason to celebrate.
I had no reason to laugh or make a toast.
I thought everything was a waste of time.
I thought just wait for the street noise go away.
I thought not be a bad idea to try to kill myself.
But something changed everything.
Someone transform the worst Christmas of the 21st century.
Enter a text message to my cell.
Enter a whatsapp.
“Jesus was born on earth and saved us from eternal death.”
“Jesus was born and so there joy, so there’s Christmas!”
Those words made something inside mi.
Those words aroused my curiosity that saved my life.
What relationship does Christmas with religion?
Research on the Internet. Probe. See in Wikipedia.
Investigate what until that day had just heard.
Birth, death and resurrection.
Joy, hope and salvation.
I wanted to discover the truth and especially that the life sing me a new song.
I wanted to find a less sad song .
“Fear not, I love you and have a wonderful plan for you”
“Fear not, the best of your life is close to start.”
His voice grief my soul.
His voice gave me answers.
“Fear not, 2013 2013 years ago I came to earth to give you eternal life.”
“Fear not, your future is guaranteed in Me. I will provide you, I will protect you and introduce you, to your ideal couple.”
“Fear not, the most important of your life can not be bought, it is My gift.”
His voice gave meaning to my life.
His voice gave meaning to my Christmas .
I found that NOT needed money to prove my worth.
I found that not need to “fashion” to be modern and hip.
I found that if I had it to Him, I had everything.
I found there was hope for my world.
That actually gave me the true HAPPINESS.
I discovered that 24th means NO gifts or holiday. Nor liquor, offers or a bearded red dress. Christmas means Jesus.
I discovered that 24th is NOT about poor people. NOT about the family. NOT about offers and gifts. Christmas is about Jesus.
I discovered that my happiness depended not of money, or people who had around me. My happiness depended on JESUS.
I discovered that the best Christmas gifts is NOT call it “jewelry”, “car” or “iphone”, is called “family”, “life” and “salvation.”
I discovered that God already gave me the best Christmas gift: His own Son.
I discovered that the best, unique and true gift of Christmas, is called Jesus.
I discovered that Someone really loved me, without limits and unconditional, just LOVE.
For the first time in my life I felt peace.
For the first time in my life I felt Happy.
For the first time in my life I felt Freedom.
Now I do not need anything or anyone to be happy.
Now I do not need material things to feel good.
That day arrived.
I wished the day would have remained forever in the calendar.
I wished that the time be stopped.
I pretended to live full of fatalism, anger and depression.
I pretended avoid writing “Merry Christmas” in my social networks.
But it was useless.
Joy filled my senses and my soul.
I already knew the true meaning of Christmas and wanted to tell to the world.
This is the most real and genuine Christmas of my life.
This is the happiest Christmas of the 21st century.
Because Jesus is Christmas.
“Fear not, for I bring you good news of great joy that will be for everyone, disease, famine and death have been defeated, because this day born in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ ( Messiah) the Lord. This will be a sign: you will find a Child wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.”
What gift you give to Jesus on Christmas?
