Fill your family's ‘joy reservoir’ this Christmas.

22-Dec-2016

Neuro science now talks about the ‘joy reservoir’ in our brains. Some even suggest it is the only part of our brain that keeps growing, as it is associated with relationships and love!
So this Christmas, amidst the tyranny of the urgent, take time to share with your children the greatest story ever told, Christ’s birth and in the process fill their joy reservoir.

Mary and I, around the candlelit tree, each Christmas Eve, served Mum’s ‘world-class fruit mince pies’ and sparkling grape juice in wine glasses to our family.
We asked them to share the year’s best:
Movie, Book, Sports game and Blessing
...and then I read the nativity account in Luke’s Gospel Chapter two.
We asked questions such as, "Why did the angel say it was the best news ever announced?"

Then I prayed a ‘father’s blessing’ over each child.
Traditions such as these bring heaps of joy to a child and fill their ‘joy reservoir’ creating resilience for life.
