Merry Christmas all!
I hope you have a blessed day surrounded by the ones you love and filled with His love. I pray that you swell with joy and contentment at what He’s given you, which will outlast anything that came out from under a Christmas tree–I guarantee it!
And if you have the time and want something more to read by yours truly, I’ve posted at Writer…Interrupted today. Here’s an excerpt of my Christmas Ponderings post:
But, I reflected on how “interrupted” Christmas has become in the couple thousand years since Mary became the mother of Jesus in that humble stable. When the “glory of the Lord shone round about” and even Herod knew something momentous had taken place.
Don’t get me wrong. I love the thrill of Christmas shopping, pulling favorite ornaments out of storage, singing along to “Sleigh Ride“and “White Christmas“…but every year there is a wistful part of me that wishes the glitzy side of Christmas was more complementary of the One we’re celebrating. Our humble Savior easily becomes a forgotten detail when the tinsel and house lights are at the top of the to-do list.
So visit over there today to see what I’m hoping to do to keep Christ in Christmas, both in my heart and in the hearts of my little ones…
Have yourselves a wonderful day!
