It's Christmas coming up in a few days, and I just want to post a note about it. Christmas can be a busy and hectic time of year and it can make anyone's hair grow a little thinner just thinking about all the stuff that we take on during the holidays.
I am just so thankful for another Christmas here on Falcon Drive with Jenn and the dogs. Last year around this time, I was feeling pretty lousy with chemo and the surrounding drugs. This year, all I can complain about is the tail end of a cold that has been doggedly hanging on since Thanksgiving. And I can definitely live with that. Once again, praise God for his healing grace, which I definitely do not deserve.
Christmas is great in two ways. It is a great social holiday: you see family and friends, you eat a lot and get a lot of time off of work. Plus, there are presents. (I was especially blessed with cool presents from my wife this year. She is the tops.)
The second way is it once again brings the miracle of Christ into many peoples minds. Christ came to bless us all with his healing grace, and if you haven't decided to take advantage of that yet, consider it this time. Life can be pretty stressful and lonely when we try to live it without God. We are, as human beings, are designed to relate to God. When we accept Christ and try to listen to what the Spirit tells us, wonderful things begin to happen because we are just wired that way.
So, Merry Christmas from me to you! Now I'm going back to play with one of my presents. (A copy of Pitchcar! Jenn is a miracle!)
