Delightful December

December is such a delightful month! Sadly, many folks might argue that statement--insisting that the month is too hectic, too commercialized, etc.etc. ~ But because December is the month when we celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ, it should be a time of great joy and celebration! Now I'll admit when my children were younger there were quite a few Decembers when I felt frazzled and exhausted--yet I still loved Christmas AND the month of December. There just wasn't enough time in the month for me to accomplish everything AND focus on The Reason for the Season. But now that my children are older (*sigh*) and my life isn't nearly as busy as it used to be, I can really focus more on the TRUE meaning of Christmas. And when I really stop and think about that most wondrous event of Jesus being born so many years ago, it is such an amazing thought! A little baby born in such a lowly setting would be the GREATEST person who ever walked the earth. And just as amazing is the fact that HE lives today!!! ~ ~ May we all take delight in that thought--not only in December, but all year long. ~ ~ For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.   Luke 2:11
