🎶 Falalalala – lalala. Tis the season to be jolly!
This year Christmas is looking different for quite a number of us, it certainly goes without saying.
Sure, we’ve sang the carols, decorated the houses (for those who do that – my family is not one of those so our home looks just like it has and always will throughout the year) and watched the all the nostalgic Christmas movies we could find – even the new ones too.
We’ve bought gifts (again, for those that do that – not us) and sent our messages, heartfelt or simply forwarded, all that matters is that we thought of someone else. We’ve done our best to cling to what we know our Christmas normal to be though our family gatherings may be smaller than usual and our generally good cheer is laced with uncertainty as the news keeps coming in.
It is looking different for me too, we’ve lost close family members and this season is just filled with memories of all that time together. Where it would make sense to come together, we must stay apart.
But there is good news…
In the midst of all, let’s cling to that truth. That there is a Saviour who will bear all this with us. And as we go through the motions of the season, let’s not forget why. Let’s take our rest from the Prince of Peace.
🎶 I wish you a Merry Christmas, I wish you a Merry Christmas, I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! 🎶 (Imagine that in the most amazing voice you ever heard…that’s totally what I sound like.)
Christmas day marks the start of the last week in the year and I’m hoping to countdown the end of the year with a post for each of the remaining days.
