Isn't it easy to gt caught up with the holidays and to forget what it is really about? -the birth of our savior, being with family and caring for one another. I always love going home for break because it is a time where i can "just be" while i am at home. But then i get home and time quickly disappears. I over plan and commit myself, and then before you know it, break is almost over and i missed the importance of the holidays.
Today is Christmas eve, what an amazing time to reflect and remember the significance of what tomorrow brings. A beautiful baby that changed the meaning and ending of our lives. who came to us out of love and to build a relationship with us all. who gave his life so we may live with him forever. What a sacrifice, and what a deep ardent love. Hopefully we can all take some time to think about just what that means.
Here are some inspiring words from Shauna Niequist i read earlier today:
"You are more than dust and bones. You are spirit and power and the image of God. And you have been given Today."
So today let us remember the one who's love is never ending and the joy of his birth!
