The Day After Christmas...

Posted on December 26, 2015 at 10:35 PM

December 26th... what a dreadful day... after all of the anticipation of Christmas Day with its frantically opened presents and hearty meals, and family members at home with us, peace on earth, goodwill toward all.... then suddenly it's over for another year.  364 days before Christmas comes again.  There is some comfort in the new things we got or the great after-Christmas bargains we garnered... BUT, it's gone.  But does it have to be?  Why can we not live in anticipation of all the characteristics of Christmas year round? We can carry Hope.  We can show Love.  We can find Joy in all circumstances.  We can pray for Peace in a hectic world.  Jesus is not just with us on Christmas in a stable in Bethlehem... He is with us the end of the ages.  Bethlehem lives on!  O Come All Ye Faithful in January!  Hark! the Angels are Singing in March!  Why can't I sing Christmas carols in July? You're right, I Can.  I WILL!  In the words of an infamous former Christmas scrooge, "I will keep Christmas in my heart all year."  How 'bout you?  Joy to the World again and again!  Pastor Glenn
