Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year. The season when everyone is called to be loving, forgiving and generous in giving.
Last December 07, Wednesday night, marked another milestone for SMLC as they celebrated their 5th Christmas party as one family. 106 people came from different places wearing black and white as a sign of unity and oneness.
It was, indeed, an elegant night full of love, joy and gratitude as everyone was busy sharing laughters, food and stories to one another.
To pump and make everyone inspired this Christmas, Bro. JC Libiran of the Light of Jesus Family was invited to encourage and give enlightenment to all teachers of SMLC.
His talk pointed out that the spirit of Christmas must be felt every day. It is not only during December that it should be celebrated. He shared that Christmas can be experienced all year round. Because Christmas is not just a season of thanksgiving - it is a state of feeling where everyone feels glad, loved and grateful for all the wonderful blessings and miracles from God, therefore, Christmas can be every day - every time of the year.
And just like any other party, it would not be fun without games and presentations. Teachers from different branches gathered like kids to enjoy and present what they have. Also, there were selected teachers who were blessed enough to receive gifts from the raffle draw.
To cap off the night, 1 teacher from male and female category were crowned as 'best dressed for the night'. Everyone kept on shouting and teasing them as the two went and danced in the middle.
Selfies and group picture taking were all around. Laughter and joy filled the room. Love and sincerity embraced the night. It was such a blessed night for everyone. And it was something that must be kept in the heart - an amazing experience of the true spirit of Christmas.
And in all ways, may we never forget that Jesus is the reason for the season.
