Hmm, well the Christmas season has ended and the New Year of 2015 is upon us. This Christmas I was very busy. My brother and his family came for a week but due to my bosses vacation I had to work much of the time they were here. I just never felt much opportunity to sit and enjoy the season. However, something did strike me.
Each year we spend a great deal of time preparing for Christmas. We buy gifts, we decorate, we sing songs, we make TONS of food. There are parties, gatherings and much more prepping us for Christmas. Christmas is a time of preparing our hearts for the birth of Jesus Christ, who took on flesh to save us. And now Christmas "time" is over. What next?
I don't want to stop this fabulous build up we create! We prep and prep and then it is just over? Why don't we continue with the current this year? Don't stop at the nativity, at the birth of a Savior. I want to focus this year on following on and getting to know this Jesus, this God come down at Christmas, Emmanuel, God with us. So, friends...let us read on, let us continue where Christmas leaves off.
