Christmas is such an exciting time! Decorations of red, green, and gold come out. The lights go up. Wardrobes change. Our favorite stores are offering their best prices of the year. Kids’ dreams of getting new stuff come true. Our breakroom tables at work are filled with delicious treats. Even the music we play at The JOY FM changes. Opportunities to celebrate abound!
As we celebrate, it is important to remember that the opportunities we have reach far beyond the “stuff” that may temporarily satisfy our senses. At the center of this celebration is our savior, Jesus – the greatest gift to mankind. I pray that you will take the time to read through the story again in Luke. Spend some time meditating on the majesty of this moment in history. Renew your adoration for the Lord. We have the opportunity to share the wonder of this season with our children, our loved ones, everyone we know, and strangers on the street. Share your JOY with the world! Merry Christmas!
