December Newsletter

Merry Christmas!  I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with friends and family.  I have to say this is truly my favorite time of the year.  I start playing Christmas music as soon as I start pulling out the decorations.  This year that was two days before Thanksgiving.  I was in my happy place.   I think my favorite item to put out this year was an early Christmas gift .  My in-laws had the opportunity to visit the Holy Land and they surprised us with a beautiful nativity from Bethlehem.  What a treasure.  nativityAs I carefully unwrapped each piece, I wondered what it must have been like for those shepherds.  Complete and utter amazement.  But more than that, I wondered, did they realized this was it? How long did it take for them to know that this was the long awaited messiah?  Can you see it?  Angles?   The star?  My heart was so full.  I didn’t want to miss this moment.  This precious moment.  Then I began to think about Christmases past that were so busy and full of events, parties and buying gifts.  I hardly remember them.  But what I do remember is what I forgot.  I forgot the baby, lying in the manger. The one who had come to save us all. I forgot him. This year, I want to see the baby Jesus in it all.  I want to ponder on the wonder of that night and rejoice with the angles and sing,  Glory to God in the Highest!  I pray that you stop and take time to remember; be still and be in awe.  Don’t miss the baby who held the hope of the world, in a manger, so long ago.
