Monday Morning Gratitudes

Just as the Wisemen brought three gifts to celebrate the wonder of Jesus' birth, so should we do likewise. Throughout the month of December, I will celebrate Jesus' birth in a simple way by focusing on things that really matter:

  • Miracles, especially at Christmas time: a wondrous star that appeared just in time for the wisemen to see; our own personal Christmas miracles that sometimes appear from no where. 
  • The wonder of Christmas: children's lighted faces. The glow of Christmas lights. The packages wrapped--elaborately or simply in brown paper. The decorated homes. 
  • Christmas plays. The fumbles and mistakes, the laughter and fun, tension and stress--all for? One night of happy recipients who brag on their children's efforts and the poor, worn-out director who's happy with the results but, oh so glad it's over.
