It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas; and we’re not even officially in December yet! I’ve been reflecting on the irony of the Christmas season. It’s become such a hectic time of year. There’s that pervasive tone of “so-much-to-do-so-little-time”. However, when I sit down and make myself and my mind still for a moment, I am reminded that it’s a very joyful season. Things don’t need to be hectic. I don’t need to do a thousand things.

I should rejoice because Jesus was born. I should rejoice because …”Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.” (Philippians 2:5-8 ESV)
