Christmas Week

21 Dec

Tis the season … Tis the WEEK!! Are YOU ready?? If you asked Diana that question right now, she would have a breakdown. I guess you could say we are NOT ready at this moment. But we will get there.

We had a great day of worship yesterday at Ebenezer. Lots of family and folks visiting from out of town. Many folks in worship yesterday that don’t make it out on a regular basis. And it was good to see them all!! My hope and prayer in the coming weeks is that we will see them more and more.
Christmas week is a great week. A crazy week. A busy week. Two families have already been touched by death, with another at the brink right now. And in the midst of all the Christmas preparation, hustle, and bustle, stress levels are at an all-time high. In fact, I don’t know if I’ve ever seen Christmas stress levels as high as I’ve seen this year. We all know the economy is bad, and we all know people who’ve lost jobs. And we all know people who’ve lost loved ones and face a first Christmas without someone special. And it is tough.
And, at the end of the week, the most wonderful time of the year will be here. And somehow most of the stress and hurt will cease for a little while … At least, that is my prayer for you guys!!
It might seem like rambling, but I write all of this today to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas!! Know that in good times and bad YOU are prayed for, loved, and appreciated. And no matter what comes down the road, God loves you and HE really is the reason for the season!!
