Christmastime is here again…


Every year I sing a made up song about Christmas to a made up tune. Basically it goes something like this…

Christmastime is here again
Packages all for me.
Big one, small ones, lots of them
They all fill me with glee.
Lets open all our presents now.
Why wait till Christmas morn?
Christmastime is here again
Packages all for me…..

I really do love Christmas and I can’t believe we’re down for the count now! Holy cow the year has just flown by. In just a few weeks Sam and I will celebrate our ‘official’ one year anniversary of moving to Georgia. God has been so good to us. We are blessed beyond measure with our family, friends, church, work, neighbors, and our life in general. For many people this has been an especially difficult year. So many have lost jobs, homes, and loved ones. Those types of losses seem to put a damper on the gaiety of the season.

The good news is, there is HOPE for all of us. That hope was born just over 2,000 years ago in a tiny cave in the little town of Bethlehem. And angels and shepherds came to sing his lullaby. And wise men from far-off lands through a him royal baby shower. And that little baby grew up and decided he loved you and I enough that he knew he just couldn’t live without us, so he paid the ultimate price for us……….he carried a wooden cross up a hill and then he laid down on it and died. He gave his life for mine (and yours, too).

This is the most wonderful time of the year! A time we can all celebrate the birth of our Savior – Jesus Christ – our reason for Christ-mas!
