Listen . . .

Think On This . . .

Once upon a time . . . I thought life would be different . . . less consuming, complicated, and chaotic.

I counted on Christmas to be . . . well . . . magical and perfect.

I’ve waited for the moment, when all the details come together in perfection, when the pressures and problems dissipate, when every part of my story is good.

I realize many of these thoughts have been produced by the books I’ve read, the movies I’ve watched, and the dreamers I’ve befriended.

And. Yet.

There’s reality to something more than the messiness of life.

If, we could see the unseen of this world . . . we would see that the Perfection of Heaven has burst through it all . . . whether we’re on the mountain or in the valley. 

This is the joy of Christmas regardless of where we are at, what we are doing, and who we are. . .

because. . .

joy comes when we recognize God is the perfection of life. 

Now, I realize the perfect life goes something like this:

And they all lived . . . ever-after . . . with-God.

Light Three Candles

Today . . .

light the candle symbolizing hope . . .  

light the candle symbolizing love . . .

and light the candle symbolizing joy. 

Think on the perfection of your life . . . the presence of Immanuel . . . God-with-us.

Merry Christmas!

Perspective . . . 

“But face the facts, all you oppressors, and then wring your hands. Listen, all of you, far and near. Prepare for the worst and wring your hands. Yes, prepare for the worst and wring your hands! Plan and plot all you want—nothing will come of it. All your talk is mere talk, empty words, Because when all is said and done, the last word is Immanuel—God-With-Us” (Isaiah 8:9-10 (MSG)).
