In Others’ Words: A New Way to Slow Down and Focus on Christmas
We’ve all heard the lyrics of a certain Christmas song: It’s the most wonderful time of the year …
And if you’re like me, you’ve probably had times when you’ve responded with “Really?!”
Christmas comes ’round the same time every year. And sometimes, sometimes, it collides with circumstances in our lives that aren’t wonderful. I could point you to the headlines … or you could share something going on in your life or something going on in a friend’s or family member’s life that would prove no, it’s not the most wonderful time of the year.
And that’s the truth.
But Christmas is also the truth. And the truth of Immanuel — God with us — is exactly why we can find hope in the midst of life going wrong … or going horribly wrong, wrong, wrong. We can look past song lyrics and cling to the TRUTH.
There are a lot of ways you can make the Christmas season special. Traditions. Music. Lights. Recipes. I want to share a new way to hold onto the TRUTH of Christmas during the next 31 days. It’s a 31 Day Scripture Writing Plan. I found it on Facebook, and found out it was developed by Shannon over at her Sweet Blessings blog. Today’s quote graphic is from the Day 1 Scripture: Isaiah 7:14-17. I hope you’ll join me in a new Christmas tradition.
