It’s actually pretty chilly here in Georgia and winter seems to be ahead of schedule. I’ve had the privilege to do some Christmas shopping for my family and I love it when you can “feel Christmas” is near.
This is one time each year that the world seems to be nicer and kinder – even though maybe it’s not. Jesus came to give us peace in crisis; joy in sorrow; love in the midst of deep pain. I don’t understand all of that, but I’ve felt all of those emotions. I chose to be a disciple of Jesus because He holds the world and He holds me in His hand every day – not just a Christmas time.
