Merry Christmas

Today I am reminded that above all the cookies and warm drinks and time with family, we are celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. Without Christ, there is no hope. Without the mystery and marvel that happened that first Christmas, I have no purpose.

But, it happens every year, no? Why is it we can’t better prioritize ourselves to expect these things that happen regularly? Well, I’m part of that everyone, and it always amazes me how quickly the year passes.
