merry bohemian christmas

Liz and Brandon came for dinner last night. We had a delicious supper and pulled out all of the neighbor-teacher-office treats and spread them on the table for dessert.

Liz, who is always asking thoughtful questions (and never talking about herself) said, “So, have you had time to really stop and ponder Christmas yet?”

It struck me. Moved me. Because the answer this year is really no. I’ve been shopping and wrapping, packing and preparing, cooking and cleaning, but I haven’t taken the time to sit and ponder Christmas.

So, today? I will ponder Christmas. That’s what Mary did. She saw the goodness of God, delivering her despite her fears.  The good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Jesus Christ, the perfect Son of God, who in His great humility came as a helpless babe, so he could redeem us in our helplessness.

Good News. Great Joy.

Merry Christmas, friends. May you be touched by the peace of Christ and blessed beyond measure this Christmas.

More beautiful, thoughtful Christmas words here and here.
