Thinking back over the many years of Christmases that I have so enjoyed, I reflect upon how each year has a uniqueness all its own.
There are different decorations to add to the tree and lights of brand new colors to string on the house for all to see. Hallmark creates the latest ornament to cherish or to share. Stores did change their hours to start earlier this year. The turkey was still warm as we left the dining chair to run to the store to grab the spot in line for sure. Black Friday had the great deals with Cyber-Monday round the bend, following was that green day(?) not sure on what that I should spend.
We finally have arrived to the eve of Christmas Day and this year we have celebrated with all those close and near. The blessed day is upon us and I can hardly wait to share it with the ones I love so dear.
But I would be remiss if to all around I do not say, O, Come, let us adore Him, the one born on this day; Our Lord, Christ Jesus, who is Saviour of the World. He brings the new life that for eternity will last. Turn to Him and surrender your heart and don’t hold back. For each day in His presence is better than the past.
Hope He brings to give us as we look into His light, the truth will shine upon us and turn darkness into light. If you do not know Him, then this season may only be a time of shallow traditions that imitate the fullness with which our souls long to be filled.
From all of us at Full Course Ministries, May you know the real reason for the season and the love of the Christ of Christmas!
