Best Birthday Ever!

Photo by blickpistol @ you hear it? Do you feel it? It is almost Christmas and the anticipation of celebration is in the air. You may be frantic with last minute shopping or brushing the sweat off your brow as you pull the last batch of cookies out of the oven, but at some point you, too, will stop long enough to breathe and be touched by the spirit of Christmas.

Being with family, eating mountains of food, and ripping the wrapping off of presents brings a joy that creates memories for years to come. All the work is finished and now you can relax and just enjoy the day of celebration.

After all, it is a birthday party.

It's easy to forget that many years ago a small baby was born and laid in a manger. Wrapped in swaddling clothes protecting him from the prickly straw, his parents looked upon him with love and wonder. Wonder at the miracle before them. A miracle that was wrought by God and bestowed upon the whole world.

This miracle child was... and is... the Savior of the world.

God with us. Among us. Within us.

As we prepare for the holiday, let us not forget that Monday is a celebration day. It's party-time! It's the best birthday the world has ever seen!

So have fun. Love on your family. And may you end the year with thanksgiving and praise for the One who came to love you and those all around you.

Merry Christmas!
