Friday Thoughts – A Day Late

Well the presents are unwrapped, the paper is in a pile, the refrigerator is bare, and the kids are occupied – sort of. Christmas is officially over. I hope that all of you had a great Christmas week and enjoyed some time off. This Christmas has been a whirlwind of sorts for our family – the “Grinchmas” sermon series really has to applied during our Christmas. We had the regular Christmas celebration – which is always a good time, but we had to deal with sickness and a death in the family – needless to say it was bizarre. I kept having to tell myself “I can’t control anyone else but myself”, “what I fill myself with controls me,” and “make Christ the perspective” – because adding a funeral and sick babies into what is a typical good time – can cause some stress. But – it was  a great Christmas – and thank you for all the notes of sympathy.

I’ve been asked about the “twelve days of Christmas” – and where it came from – and I’ve discovered a great article from a magazine called “Christian History.” Please check out the article at: http://www.christianitytoday.com/ch/news/2004/dec24.html

I hope you have a great Saturday – and I will see you at worship tomorrow at 10:45 a.m. We will have nursery and kid’s connection – but it will be a very basic set-up this Sunday. God Bless
