Finding Joy in this Season

Are you finding it difficult to find Comfort & Joy in this Christmas season my friend?

Has it all become rather overwhelming?

In the busyness of this season I invite you to take a little breather & join me in a relaxing cuppa.

I have a hot mug of Spicy Christmas tea (so delicious) ready for us & a little Short crust fruit mince tart for our treat.

So let’s put our feet up as we reflect & sip awhile…

An Epiphany

Many years ago I came to the realisation that the Spirit of Christmas is not in the material things that the media & marketing world would have us believe it is.

Nor, is it in the latest gift ideas, nor in the perfect tree & decorations, it’s not in the food we serve or even the people we celebrate with!

You see all these things while traditional & may make us feel warm & fuzzy.

Or stressed out & overwhelmed…are not what Christmas is actually about!

Christmas is about joy & comfort…Comfort & joy!

Let me explain…

  • Joy that mankind has been gifted the Prince of Peace from that very first Christmas night ~ Jesus the Christ
  • Joy in the good news of Christ’s message Peace on earth..
  • Joy that the ultimate relationship He came to give is open to all today Ladies & Gentlemen!


  • Comfort that through Jesus, also known as Immanuel, God is with us.
  • Comfort that He has already defeated the enemy of our souls through the Easter experience.
  • Comfort that He has promised that He will return…soon!

So although the last few years have been extremely overwhelming  for us all, with a Pandemic that keeps on giving, it doesn’t change those facts above!

Let’s dwell upon the importance of Christ in this Christmas season for a few more moments…

“For God so loved the world

 that He gave His one & only Son,

so that whomsoever believes

 in Him [Jesus Christ] shall not perish

but have life eternal.” 

John 3:16

Christmas isn’t just a season

it’s a relationship

 for eternity!

May you come to know His peace, joy & comfort not just in this season my friend but in all the seasons to come, how to do this is shared here.

Until next time,


You’re most welcome to join me in The Reading Nook

  1. Jennifer, there is such a comfort to be found in celebrating Christmas each year. Christmas brings the comfort of our Savior, our Redeemer, sent to save us. And you are right, in the midst of all the challenges this world is facing at this time, Christmas brings comfort and peace and hope to our hearts!
