December 24th

I'm slow in getting this posted, but want to anyway!

Today the last figurine is put on the advent calender.

The culmination of this month of anticipation.

My prayer on December first was that this Christ-Child would show me more of Who He is.

And He has.

So many thoughts and lessons I'd like to write down...but now is the time to worship.

The pastor at the church we attended last week when our van was broken so we were limited to a church within walking distance put it this way:

"The coming of Christ is so awe-inspiring and powerful that to try and give tips and applications is like teaching a group some new card tricks on the edge of the Grand Canyon."

Really, we just take this time to worship together.  To bask in the immensity and incredibility that "there is born to you this day a Savior, who is Christ the Lord."

And with the angels, sing, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."
