Christmas is Coming!

We are already halfway through the month of December, which means...Christmas is coming---SOON!!
Are we so caught up in the hustle-bustle of the season that we're letting the JOY slip past us?
 I am making an effort to spend more time now thinking--really thinking--about that most wondrous Event that happened so many years ago in Bethlehem. The birth of a precious little Baby who came to save the world, the angels singing about His birth, and the shepherds in the fields who realized something miraculous had happened.
As Christmas approaches, I want to be ready---not just with shopping, baking, and decorating. I want to be ready to celebrate the birth of my Savior, Jesus Christ, with a heart filled with JOY---the true joy that only comes from knowing Him.

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.    Luke 2:11
