19 days left in 2006. Doesn't that make you tingle? I don't enjoy Christmas, its all too much I think, but New Years is a holiday with a real purpose, with real depth. Christmas is so empty right now, even the "remember the true meaning of it all" whispers are so empty.

So I wonder how we go about "taking back" a holiday. How do we make Christmas about God being born as a baby? I'm o.k. with a few presents or a nice meal, but how do we actually put meaning into the day. As in so many cases, I feel that the challenge is for me to be the change I want to see.
I will pray for both you and I that Christmas will be the day we both dwell upon the astounding birth of Jesus.

really?? New Years always makes me a little melancholy... but I always enjoy Christmas.. me and my heavenly father always seem to have some really good times on that day. I think the difference is.. Christmas I focus on him, New Years I focus on me... and what I feel I should be, or should have accomplished... a sad habit I know.. somehow I need to shift my new years focus too.
