Christmastime is Here!

12.24.2013

Sometime during my teenage years, I remember feeling less than content in the days leading up to Christmas.  I think it was that awkward time when you realize Christmas has to change from what it was when you were a kid.  But the worst part was,  you had no idea of what it would change to.

Now, at the mature old age of 28, I know that Christmas is just as magical now as it was when I would rush down to see what Santa brought...it's just a different type of magic. And in some ways, it's better.

I am soaking up and savoring every moment this wonderful season has to offer, because as always, as fast as it arrived, it'll be gone even faster...


And, if nothing else, all I really need to remember and soak up is this...

She will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel, which means "God with us." 
Matthew 1:23

Christmas is about the peace that came into this world all those years ago. It's about breathing in the simple, overwhelmingly wonderful fact that God is with us.

This year I chose peace over the rush...the quiet over the frantic...and it has made all the difference in the world.

Merry Christmas eve, y'all!
