Between Ryan and Julia and Eric and Allan and the choir, I was caught up this morning. Hallelujah!! We will sing it for ever to the king of kings! And that will be very good. He came as a baby and He made it possible for us to come like children. He lived as a man, humbling Himself for mankind. Hallelujah!

I want to encourage you to forget about it. Forget about your troubles, issues, concerns, debt and family dynamics. Kick back, lean forward and enjoy! He is born and we celebrate the next few days. Enjoy being with whomever you are with. Bless them as He has blessed you.

And then, when it is all over, when the packages have been opened and the food eaten, we will enter into anno domini 2008. One year closer to the return of the King. Hallelujah!
