Merry 3 Days After Christmas

12.28.2010

I am always sad when Christmas is over. I can't explain why. I just am. I love the preparation and anticipation that goes into everything for the month of December.

And then, before I can even blink...it's gone.

But here I sit. 3 days after Christmas and all of decorations are in the same place and our tree is still lit. It's just the knowledge that in just a couple of days, the decorations will be packed back up and the tree will be taken to the curb.

Seriously. That's sad

One thing that keeps me happy in this post Christmas season is knowing that the reason we celebrate December 25th in the first place is alive all year.  So when the garland is gone and the stockings are no longer hung by the chimney with care, His promises will keep me uplifted and encouraged in the months to come.

I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. 
-- John 10:10
I read this is someone else's blog earlier today:

Jesus isn't just the reason for the season. He's the reason for everything

So in the days leading into 2011, remember that. That even though we'll be 11 months away from another Christmas season, Jesus is an every season kind of Jesus.
