Besides Christmas we have family birthdays to celebrate. Bill, Brooke, and Allie all have birthdays. This month Brooke turns 5, Allie turns 2, and I'm not going to mention how old Bill is. We are so blessed to have these sweet girls in our lives.
Besides Jesus' birthday, do you have other special days in December?

I don't know the people who own this house, but on my way home after a long day at work, I drove by this house. The beauty brightened my evening and made me smile.
How about this angel with the star overhead?
At last I pulled into my driveway. Tim always does such a nice job with our outside lights.
I hope you find time to enjoy the lights of Christmas.

“The teaching of the Sermon on the Mount is not--Do your duty, but--Do what is not your duty. It is not your duty to go the second mile, to turn the other cheek, but Jesus says if we are His disciples we shall always do these things. There will be no spirit of--"Oh, well, I cannot do any more, I have been so misrepresented and misunderstood". . . Never look for right in the other man, but never cease to be right yourself. We are always looking for justice; the teaching of the Sermon on the Mount is--Never look for justice, but never cease to live it.”
― Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest
Merriam Webster defines justice as, " the process or result of using laws to fairly judge and punish crimes and criminals."
Judge and punish. The Bible tells us not to judge others, and Oswald Chambers tells us to never look for justice.
Working with the public you learn very early that the customer is always right. I've learned to bite my tongue and care for customers whether I've agreed with them or not. Because I work in a pharmacy, we often go the extra mile to help a customer get their medicine even if we don't have it or if the insurance company won't pay for it.
When I'm shopping I try to show appreciation for good customer service. Tim laughs at me when we get a bad clerk or waiter because I consider it a challenge to make them smile. I'm not sure if this is what Jesus meant by turning the other cheek and going the extra mile, but if my actions help somebody else for even a moment, I'm happy.
How do you go the extra mile?
