Only three days ’til Christmas! Have you gotten caught up in the frantic shop/wrap/bake/clean frenzy that sometimes sums up the week before Christmas? I admit to sometimes getting grumpy and feeling like it is just a commercial racket, “run by a big eastern syndicate.” like Lucy says on A Charlie Brown Christmas.
Well, last night we all piled into our room, (since I moved the tv out of the living room for a while!) and watched Linus remind us what Christmas is all about. You know that when he says, “Lights, please,” you have gotten to the part that wouldn’t even make it on television now if it hadn’t already become such a classic.
Let this be a reminder to all of us how much God loves us, that He sent His Son into the world that He might be a propitiation for our sins. And since He first loved us, let us love one another! That’s all we need to have the merriest Christmas…a thankful heart!
