Celebrate the Reason

December 17, 2008

Penn of Denn

Well, Christmas is almost upon us and if you aren’t ready, then you had better hustle.

If you are like most people, you decided last Christmas, that this Christmas would be different. You vowed that you were going to slow down, that you weren’t going to get caught up in all the commercialization of the season and you were going to spend more time reflecting on the true meaning of Christmas. So, how are you doing with that?

Christmas has come to mean so much more than simply celebrating the birth of Jesus. He may be “a” reason for the season, but in 2008, He’s not the only reason. Today, it’s about giving and getting. It’s about spending time with our families and friends. And it’s a time, to at least give lip service to peace on earth and goodwill to all mankind.

And those things aren’t bad things.

But amidst the sacrificed trees and turkeys, let’s remember that Christmas is about God stepping into our world and into our lives. And I trust that you will find Him a little time this Christmas, to welcome Him into your world and your life.

Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
