Merry Christmas

A very Merry Christmas to you!

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas Eve friends!

I'm sure your kids are as excited as mine!

After all the decorating, shopping, wrapping, baking, it's time to slow down and enjoy.

We celebrate Christmas because of Christ's gift to us so long ago. Yes, we're guilty of commercializing it and reducing it to sparkly lights and pretty gift wrap. But in the middle of all of it, do you feel the JOY, the HOPE and the PEACE?

I hope you do! My favorite Christmas carol is 'O Holy Night', I find the lyrics so moving and they ground me and remind me to turn my focus to that most wonderful of Christmas gifts, who was born in a manger so long ago!

O Holy Night

O holy night, the stars are brightly shining
It is the night of our dear Savior's birth.

The thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices, 
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.

Fall on your knees, 
Oh, hear the angel voices
O night divine, 
O night when Christ was born
O night divine, 
O night, O holy night.

I trust you are feeling the hope, joy and peace that believing in Christ brings. And if you don't, that you seek him as the wise men did so long ago!

Have a blessed and Merry Christmas!
