Holiday Ponderings -- A Day to Rejoice!

Turkey soup consumed, egg custard pie yummy-ness enjoyed, and now the final "Thanksgiving Holiday" happenings would commence: White Christmas with Bing Crosby, Danny Kay, Rosemary Clooney, and Vera Ellen. The family snuggles under blankets while candles glow and familiar melodies are sung.

That was last night. Today I will pull out bins of Christmas decor and begin the lengthy process of preparation for the grandest of holiday celebrations.

Our hearts are heavy this year, battered from months of storms, a bit weary of travel in this land. I need to remember today our heritage, our reason for celebrating, our cause for joy. I remind myself again.

What better time to remember His gift of love which came into this dry, sin-scarred world to bring hope, peace, and Love itself? I need to celebrate this year more than ever.

Garlands of evergreen and holly, songs of the Christ child's humble birth, golden angels and stable scenes -- all these things take on more important meaning as I experience first-hand time and again the brokenness of this world. He has saved us and we will know an eternity free from sorrow and grief, time and separation. He has redeemed us from the sin of others -- and from our own.

Oh, what a Savior! Come, let us rejoice together in His love this Christmas season.
