Today is Christmas and I hope for everyone who reads this blog that it is a wonderful holiday. When I think of the first Christmas I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the first, most amazing Christmas gift in the history of mankind. A tiny baby - sent to earth as an ambassador for God. It's such a crazy idea that it would have been impossible to make it up. And yet, for over 2000 years we've been celebrating this amazing day. It is truly one of the mysteries of life. And life needs more mystery as far as I'm concerned.
Merry Christmas to everyone reading this. And may this year be the one we truly do see the angels' prophesy come true: peace on earth and goodwill toward men. What a wonderful idea that is. I think it was more of a goal that God was setting before us than it was a proclamation. And it is a goal worth striving for.
