You’ve all seen and heard the disclaimers that accompany advertisements for the latest and greatest prescription medications. These medications may cure what ails you, but they may also result in anything from a mild case of dandruff to the bubonic plague!
We’ve got some amazing things happening in our valley. In just the next few days, there’s Peter Breinholt, Christmas Tree Lane, the Snow College Holiday Music Spectacular, and the Christmas Lights Parade to name a few!
In case you attend any of the upcoming Christmas Programs and parties in the valley, I wanted to provide my own set of disclaimers. You might start feeling warm and fuzzy --- a little less like Ebenezer Scrooge and more like a campfire marshmallow. You might experience a case of light-headedness which makes you want to be nice to someone who has been mean to you or has despitefully used you.
You could even find yourself wanting to forgive the neighbor’s cat. NOTE: If that symptom lasts more than an hour you should go straight to the hospital and have your head examined.
The most likely thing you will experience is a love for the reason that we are remembering and celebrating. If these symptoms persist, then you will be blessed and you will be a blessing to everybody you meet and associate with this Christmas season and beyond. If this change of heart hurts a little bit; well, then accept the tincture with humility. Let your heart swell for that, friends, is what Christmas is all about.
