Well, it's the blog before Christmas...
I know the game for me right now is getting prepared!
But why do we prepare?
Does that thought exhaust you???
It is not supposed too – because Christmas is a time for celebration!
The thrust of the Angle's message to the Shepards in the field was straight to their hearts – with the message told to them that the Saviour of mankind was born.
So how is that Good News resonating in your heart just before Christmas day?
Are you drowning in preparations around you or are you preparing your heart for celebration.
In the traditional Churches we have fasts and Advent to help us welcome the New Born King.
And around me here in the Holy Land there is some preparations, lights, artwork, and anticipation...
But I must be ready for the commitment God has shown us all in coming to His creation in the form of a Child!
I know it happened – Who it was, and why He came to earth... the reminders are all around me!
That Child – that Gift, is Christ the King... and we must worship and celebrate Him.
My humble gift back to God is participation.
With all well wishes for Christmas love and joy,
