Christmas has always been a magical time of the year for me. From my earliest memory my Daddy made Christmas wonderful. There have been times that I have found Christmas over-whelming---and times that I even fought off being blue---but even with that it has always been my favorite time of the year.
For many and various reasons, I have not had the "Magical Feeling" this year. There are no decorations---not even a tree. I just could not get it all going this year. It is almost like it is not really Christmas. I did get out and push through gifts for the close family---but that has been it. I have almost chosen to skip Christmas altogether---except for the Grands---I might have done just that.
Today God revealed to me that the "Wonder and Magic" are not in the tinsel and presents----but in the very thing we are celebrating--The Birth Of Our Saviour. It is a wonder and beyond my ability to comprehend why He chose to come down to Earth---HOW He could love us that much-------That Love Beyond Reason! So as I drove along the interstate, I took the time to thank Him for the Reason for the Season. Perhaps it was a good thing to put all the Human part of Christmas aside for a season and STOP and reflect on the "Wonder of It All".
Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday, Jesus!
