Bah Humbug!

I had a converstion the other day in the checkout line.
The man who I talked with was unhappy about everything
to do with Christmas, even the fact that gift cards
have taken the place of cash etc...
As he grumbled on and on I started
thinking about what Christmas means to me
so I asked him,
"Do you celebrate the true meaning
of Christmas, Jesus birth?"
and he responded "I believe he was a 
good man, but other than that, no, I don't."

Well there you have it, if any one of us forgets
what Christmas means we have plenty to grumble 
about and if we forget that every day 
of every year is a celebration
of Christ then I believe
we not only miss out on Christmas
but we miss out on life!  

I pray that each of you is living a full
and joyous Christmas season,
even if things might be hard in life
or you may be lonely...
I'm both of those things today,
but I am choosing to celebrate the
King of Glory and the Prince of Peace,
I hope you'll join me!
