Yesterday my task was to give myself a Christmas treat. Let me tell you that I really needed something yesterday after the day I had, I wont go in to it but read here if you want to know more. So I was out Christmas shopping with my parents and younger brother and was on the lookout for something for myself.
After almost finishing my Christmas shopping, only one present left to get now, I began looking around for things for myself. There are really only two things I want this Christmas, one is a new crucifix and the other is a watch. Since I already have a crucifix I like I am waiting to see if there is one that I think is more personal for me, something that not only expresses my faith but one that I feel personally connected to, some people may think that is the wrong way to think of it but that is my feelings on it. And for the watch I know I am already getting a very nice watch from my brother as I picked it out.
So wandering round the shopping mall I couldn't think of what to get myself and was feeling that maybe some sweets or a book may be in order. In the end I settled on getting myself a new watch, It was bought in a shop that I though had a special offer on, turns out I need to open my eyes more, but I bout 3 watches in there, one for my Mum one for my brother and one for me. Its not the most spectacular treat or even what most people would think of as a treat but in my family presents normally tend to have a practical theme to them, why buy something people don't need or won't use. But the main thing is that I am happy with it and that is the main part of a treat.
Today's task is task number 3. Pray for someone lonely this Christmas. Check back tomorrow to see how that task goes and what I do for it. Until then, Merry Christmas guys.
