It is no surprise today is Christmas. It is the most controversial of days to some, a cherished day to others, and a myriad of days for other people. But it is the day many celebrate at the birth of Christ.
This morning, instead of me reading the Christmas story as I do every year, I had the kids tell me the story and why all those elements of the story were so important. And they did a pretty good job. The difficulty is lifting the story off the pages and truly embracing what an amazing situation all those individuals were in.
So no matter what your thoughts are on the Christmas story, and no matter what you believe, it doesn’t change things for me, or for others, or for even God Himself. He was born over 2000 years ago. And today, I am most pleased to celebrate His birth!!!
