A woman was out Christmas shopping with her two children. After many
hours of looking at row after row of toys and everything else
imaginable; and after hours of hearing both her children asking for
everything they saw on those many shelves, she finally made it to the
elevator with her two kids.

She was feeling what so many of us feel during the holiday season
time of the year - overwhelming pressure to go to every party, every
housewarming, taste all the holiday food and treats, getting that
perfect gift for every single person on our shopping list, making
sure we don't forget anyone on our card list, and the pressure of
making sure we respond to everyone who sent us a card.

Finally the elevator doors opened, and there was already a crowd in
the car. She pushed her way into the car and dragged her two kids in
with her and all the bags of stuff. When the doors closed, she
couldn't take it anymore and she stated, "Whoever started this whole
Christmas thing should be found, strung up and shot."

From the back of the car, everyone heard a quiet, calm voice respond,
"Don't worry, we already crucified Him."

For the rest of the trip down in the elevator, it was so quiet you
could have heard a pin drop. This year, don't forget to keep "the One
who started this whole Christmas thing" in your every thought, deed,
purchase and words. If we all did it, just think of how different
this whole world would be.

That is a real nice story and so true. I wish now that I would've thought more about Jesus Christ than myself. Thank You.
