Christmas is FULL of so many great things: shopping, baking, wrapping, sending cards, decorating. There’s also: attending kids’ concerts, get-togethers, and parties. It truly is the most wonder-FULL time of the year.
Although I love all of these festivities, sometimes I find myself losing my focus at Christmastime. Instead of slowing my thoughts, and focusing on God’s extravagant gift of his baby Son, I find myself hurriedly checking tasks off my to-do list.
Isaiah 9:6 For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given;
and the government shall be upon his shoulder,
and his name shall be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
