4 days until Christmas! Hearing about the birth of Jesus on Christmas Eve has been a tradition for as long as I can remember. For awhile it was just something I endured before present time. But understanding has a way of making the ‘boring parts’ meaningful. There are so many wonderful things about the Christmas story to celebrate in, that nowadays I can’t hear it without finding something new to get excited about. Funny how the things you hated as a kid usually end up being the best parts.
Question of the Day: What is your favorite part of the Christmas story?
My Answer: I’ve always loved the part about the wise men following a star to find Jesus. It may have something to do with our Nativity set with the camels, or maybe because that’s the part where gift-getting tradition came from. Whatever the reason, I often take a moment to gaze overhead during Christmastime.
