PAUSE to Reflect

Christian Christmas

Time in this crazed holiday schedule to hit the PAUSE button and take time to reflect.

Why do we do Christmas?

Expectations. Traditions of family gatherings that are more often stressful than wonderful. Compelled along by the commercial flow, much like an inexorable river of lava that stops for no one.

Joy. Hope for peace that only love can bring.

Because, as we sing in the old Christmas hymn, “Love came down at Christmas, love all lovely, Love divine.”

So set aside the worry of getting one more present for each of the grandkids and baking one more batch of cookies.

Reflect for a moment…Why do you do Christmas?

      1. To be honest, more than anything else, I look forward to the candlelit Christmas Eve service at church. Everything else seems to pull me away from that time of worship and thankfulness for the greatest gift ever.
