It’s Quiet Now……

The house is quite with the grandkids and TF all snuggled in their beds. Jen, Justin and William are out for a quite night at a local bar…….not exactly what I was expecting but it will have to do……The two Christmas trees are all aglow and a bell choir is playing on TV. The stockings are now hung at the foot of the stairs and I am trying to just get a quite moment before I fall off into lala land.

I wonder what it was like all those years ago when Mary and Joseph where off in a strange land and about to have a baby any minute. They were sent to a stable, the only place available in town at the moment. The famous “star” shown over head. Those familiar with the words of the scriptures knew that something grand was about to happen, the savior of the world was about to be born. Shepard’s noticed the star as they watched their flocks by night, it must have been an awesome sight. Wise men and three kings followed the star till they found the Christ child, wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. They brought gifts to the new born king. As we open our gifts this Christmas morning, lets remember what we are celebrating and enjoy the day with our families.

Merry Christmas to one and all, and to all a good night!

Merry Christmas, Lucy.

I was think along these same lines this morning. Maybe for a post Christmas morning blog.

About Christmas expectations: Children, toys from Santa probably. Men, family and gifts. Ladies, more family.
What about Mary? What would it be like to finally come to the birth time, birth of The Savior for the World!

I don't know any devout Chrstian women, or men for that matter, who have had a child born on Christmas morning. What a reminder that must be, always, for those lucky ones!

Very well said Jim, that must be an awesome blessing to have a baby born on Christmas Day and all the thoughts that must go with such an event.

It's amazing how things hit home to you when you're teaching them to someone else for the first time. We had our first ever "just us" Christmas this year, and so we read the story of the nativity, just us, with a mind to teaching our little girls. Amazing, how touching and miraculous it all was.

I pulled out out my old Christmas book with Dickens' A Christmas Carol. It always amazes me how many of the woes Dickens wrote about then are still with us today. Some credit Dickens with reviving our celebration of Christmas. It is the most wonderful time of the year.
