Wow, my year has flown by!
I am sure that many of us feel this way, especially around this season. Ironically, the Christmas season is the most chaotic and busy time for most people. At the time of Jesus's birth, the same chaos we find in our time must have been taking place in Bethlehem. God choose such a seemingly odd time to send His Child into this world. Mary and Joseph might of been frustrated with the situation they were in. It was tax day, a census, and a big trip with a pregnant mother! They arrived late at night, and were too slow to find an inn to stay in, so a stable was all that was left. Yet in this time of turmoil the angles said to all creation, "Glory to God in the highest,and on earth peace, goodwill toward men!” God gave us the most precious gift of all when we might not have expected it.
Merry Christmas to everyone! Remember to cherish every moment of it, because we only get it once a year. So take it easy. :P
