The tree is decorated, everything in place. Much of the creating is finished. I'm eager to get my wrapping wrapped up. Our schedule for the next few weeks is jam packed with goodness so I was hoping to have a head start coming into December... so far... so good.
Today I am thankful for a spirit of celebration, for friends who keep me busy and feeling loved, for family that is always ready and willing, for green, fragrant glowing beauty that jolts the senses into the reality that here we are once again...
...Once again we have entered that time of giving generously, receiving graciously and rejoicing publicly to a population who is more willing to listen at this time than at any other time of the year. Let's not waste this moment. When someone is singing What Child Is This, let's use the opportunity to share about the Child who was born to die... so that I might one day pray to Him to save my life! Oh beautiful, glorious time of year!
