We have finally gotten the tree and decorations up. Bo and the boys are going to do the outside tomorrow. The boys want to put lights up outside. So being the cool parents we are, said "That would be awesome!"
I love this time of year. Yes ... money is tight. Yes ... crowds bother me. Yes ... the house has more clutter BUT it's Jesus' birthday!!
I know that December wasn't part of the 10 month Jewish calendar and I know that some believe that Christians took over some sort of pagan holiday where they worshipped the winter moon (or the sun or something) but that doesn't change the fact that He was born. We can fuss about all that stuff or we can marvel at the fact that "For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace." Isaiah 9:6 (emphasis mine)
Jesus is that child ... that son!
I know that y'all have your trees up and your homes are decorated. I pray this holiday season is the best yet! I pray a blessing over your families and homes. I pray that God shows Himself to you in new ways this coming year. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
I praise His name for His son.
