Today’s going to be a busy day. I was up early to wrap the last of the presents. I’ve baked goodies to take to Sunday School and even squeezed in the last 30 minutes of Legally Blonde that I just couldn’t stay up for last night. [Anybody else have to watch it EVERY time it is on TV? No, maybe it’s just me.] As soon as I finish this post, I’ll grab a shower, hurry off to Sunday School, sing in the choir for church, grab a quick lunch, change into my all-black attire, head back to church for Candlelight rehearsal at 3, sing in the service, and then head to the Burgesses house for the post-Candlelight Christmas party. Whew! It would be exhausting if it weren’t so much fun.
Of course, the danger in a day that is this busy is that it becomes all about the rushing and the worship gets forgotten. That is definitely not what I want for Christmas. I want to focus on The Gift and The Giver.
“My mouth is filled with your praise, declaring your splendor all day long,” Psalm 71:8.
On this day, the Sunday of Christmas week, my prayer is that we will all focus on the extraordinary gift we were given through Jesus’ birth. May His peace and His love fill your Sunday (and mine!), and may His name be glorified in all the earth.
