1 week before Christmas To-Do List
- Shopping done. No.
- Presents wrapped. No.
- Baking done. No.
- Christmas cards done. No.
- Ready. Yes. Can’t wait!!!!
From the perspective of the first Christmas, a completed holiday to-do list is not even close to the joy of Christmas.
With everything within me, I don’t want to go back to the way it was. Ever.
Let the sea and everything in it shout his praise!
Let the fields and their crops burst out with joy!
Let the trees of the forest sing for joy
Consider this kind of joy, an all out joy that has nothing to do with the to-do list but all to do with the first Christmas.
Today . . . light the candle symbolizing hope . . . light the candle symbolizing love . . . and light the candle symbolizing joy, the kind that has nothing to do with the to-do list..
Joy displayed on earth!
Joy on earth as it is in heaven!
