One week from today, it will all be over. The presents will be opened and the wrappings discarded. The letdown after days, even months, of preparation will begin. It doesn’t have to be that way.
Christ is still with us, Christ is still in Christmas and Christ will still love us just as much next week…or years from today….as he does today.
So what does all that mean? Charles Dickens has the answer. “I will honor Christmas in my heart and try to keep it all the year.”
Remember we have our annual Candlelight at Dawson at 5 o’clock p.m. this Saturday and Sunday. Be sure to attend a worship service this weekend, and invite someone to attend with you.
