I’m not big on Christmas decorations. It’s not like I have a moral objection to being festive, and I certainly am not against participating in the excitement of the holidays…I just don’t like decorating my house.
If only we could peek into the spiritual world. How marvellous it would be to pull back the invisible curtain separating heaven and earth. I’ve always fantasized about what my eyes would see: Jesus at the right hand of God, our Lord at work in the heavenly realms, angels among us.
Every year Christmas seems to get more complicated. Maybe I've just been protected from it all these years, or unaware of holiday politics as I was so busy with other things like travelling or seeing old friends or whatever it was.
This question brings one of the more memorable lines from Miss Congeniality to mind: “That's a tough one. I would have to say April 25th. Because it's not too hot, not too cold, all you need is a light jacket.”
“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.” Isaiah 60:1-3
