So close…


 They hurried to the village and found Mary and Joseph. And there was the baby, lying in the manger. After seeing him, the shepherds told everyone what had happened and what the angel had said to them about this child.

Luke 2:16,17 NLT

We are so close now. So close to the celebration of Christmas. There are only two more sleeps, and it will be here. I hope you are able to enter into the excitement and joy that this celebration is meant to be. I hope you feel the wonder, the peace, the love.

The Shepherds certainly understood the celebration. They couldn’t stop talking about it. They went to see it with their own eyes, and then they told everyone they knew about what they had seen and heard.

May we do the same – may we encounter something so wonderful, so transformative this Christmas that we just have to share it with everyone.
