This is the last week before Christmas and most everyone is busy and running here and there all over town. I hope you have all your gift buying and preparations done and if you don’t I hope you get everything finished up quickly and easily. Wherever you are in the scheme of things this week, just remember to take the time to experience the joy of the season. Sip some egg nog, eat some cookies, and take a moment to reflect on Christmas.
Whatever you do, seek joy this week. Do not get caught up and carried away by busyness, materialism, and cynicism. Do you remember what Christmas felt like when you were a child? Do you remember the magic? Do you remember the awe of a newborn baby in a manger?
One of my favorite Christmas songs is Christmas Like a Child by Third day. Check the song out in the video below. Take a minute and listen to this moving and wonderful song. I hope you like it as much as I do and I hope your Christmas week is blessed and joyful.
