Here is a quote I stumbled upon this morning.
When I think of Christmas Eves, Christmas feasts, Christmas songs, and Christmas stories, I know that they do not represent a short and transient gladness. Instead, they speak of a joy unspeakable and full of glory. God loved the world and sent His Son. Whosoever believes in Him will not perish, but have everlasting life. That is Christmas joy. This is the Christmas spirit. ~ Corrie Ten Boom (1892-1983)
Have a Merry Christmas as you wonder at Christ's first Advent and worship in hope of Christ's second Advent.
