|King's Christmas Tree ~ 2011|
There is just something special about sitting in the morning, and in the evening and just admiring our Christmas tree. From the time I can remember, that has always been one of my favorite times of the Christmas season, even as a child. As I sit here this morning I realize that there has always been so much more to this thing called life then we ever embrace. Sure, we get the big things like birthdays, birth of new ones, death of loved ones, holiday celebrations January through December. But what about celebrating a Sunday for it being Sunday or baking a pie because it's Thursday?
Life is worth celebrating! Taking the time to enjoy every single moment of the day, spending that time in His will for our lives will not promise rainbows and butterflies ~ but it does promise a peace that is ever lasting!
I imagine that the three wise men were having just an ordinary day when the angel appeared to them. Just a normal Tuesday, with work, and perhaps just making it through the day.
13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, 14 “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.” 15 When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.” Luke 2:13-15
That ordinary Tuesday became something spectacular! What is in store for YOU today, on this "ordinary" Sunday in December?
