I heard the angels sing last night, and their voices filled me with awe and wonder. The songs still echo in my mind and heart:
Peace on earth good will to men!
What child is this?
Joy to the world!
Let heaven and nature sing!
This is the season for shopping and baking and mailing greeting cards and wrapping presents and planning dinners and going to parties and seeing relatives and running madly from one activity to the next. There's so much to do and so little time left in which to do it that we push ourselves through the days and weeks hoping only to survive the holidays with a little sanity intact.
Sometimes we forget why there's a holiday in the first place.
My wish for you is to hear the angels' voices that still sing praise and worship in honor of the babe whose birth we celebrate.
This Christmas, may you be filled with the things that truly matter:
His peace and joy!
