Christmas is both a joy and a stress... I guess I shouldn't be surprised that the world would turn something as beautiful as the birth of the Saviour of all into a time of stress, frustration and hurt.
This year, I don't know, but I'm not as stressed as normal. Probably has to do with the fact for the first time in 12 years we are doing no driving! Everyone is visiting us! Praise God for that one!
With all the business of the next few days, I just want to rest in the joy and peace in knowing that the Lord of Lords, the prince of peace, and the king of kings has come into the world... and for some bizarro reason, he loves me so much that he allowed himself to be born in a stable surrounded by animals and shepherds. The creator of the universe loved me so much that he would humble himself like that! That thought is just MIND BLOWING! And I want to savour every minute of celebrating that event this year with family and friends who mean so much to me!
The Saviour is born! Peace on Earth and good will to all people!
Have an awesome Christmas with your loved ones.
