Now that the whirlwind of preparing for Christmas (business and on the home-front) is mostly behind me, I can spend a little time in reflection. As always when approaching the end of the year, we tend to look back and think of ways we could improve our situations, our lives, and our minds. I have to wonder though if I spend too much time in thinking and not enough in doing. I’m a planner and a list maker. My lists tend to be very long and very detailed – and consequently I get overwhelmed. I find myself checking things off my lists with emphasis on getting it done and often feel I’m missing out on life! I know it’s not the destination we should cherish, but the road getting there.
In reading one of my devotionals this morning my Christmas prayer for you is this:
I pray that God grants you the light in Christmas which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
the all of Christmas, which is Christ.
