Oh sweet Charlie Brown
Growing up we all watched the Charlie Brown specials. I loved it as each year they would come and I would sit before them in awe, with my eyes glued to the television. Charlie Brown was sent out to get a tree, and he didn't bring back one that was big, one that was nine feet tall, he brought back one that he saw beauty in, one that he thought had potential. As the others laughed at him, he never gave up hope in that little tree, he gave love to that little tree, and with that love that tree began to shine. As Charlie Brown stepped out, as he took the steps to see beauty in something that others laughed at, he showed what the love of God can really do when we have hope. Charlie Brown always seemed to have hope when all around him lost it, isn't that something even as adults we can learn from today? I don't think we ever out grow Charlie Brown, he seems to have a place in our hearts, for he knew the meaning of Christmas. And isn't that what we are to do, to spread Christmas cheer to all around us with the hope in Jesus Christ? May your Christmas be filled with hope, may you see the hope that Jesus gives us so freely, if we just choose to believe~
