As a Christian blogger I would feel remiss if I didn’t post about one of the two most significant holidays of my faith. (The other is Easter.) I celebrated in the traditional way with family, friends, Christmas Eve church service, presents, etc. It was a lot like years past, but there was something different. About 3 this morning I got a special gift. Do I dare call it an epiphany? I was thinking about the irony of why we get gifts when it’s Jesus’ birthday…a simple thing that confounds the wise. We talk of giving Jesus the gift of our heart, but what does that mean? This morning I learned what it means for me this year, yet even that revelation is a gift from God because apart from Him I can do nothing.
The bottom line is that this Christmas will be a memorable
one. I hope to share more later.
