It's only 3 days till Christmas!!!
I am beyond excited. I just got back about an hour ago from buying the VERY last present I have to buy. Now I can just relax and enjoy the "season". I love everything about Christmas. I love the festivities, the shopping, even the crazy Alabama weather. It's 61 degrees right now.
And I love the "reason for the season". I know that's a phrase we throw around casually and I must confess that I haven't taken any time out to really think about the real meaning of Christmas this year. But, I'm thinking about it now.
I am in awe of that young, virgin girl who replied, "I am the Lord's servant" when the angel told her she would give birth to the Son of God. I will be anxious to talk with Mary in Heaven someday. I can't comprehend or grasp the level of emotions she must have gone through in her lifetime. What could it have possible felt like to hold the Son of God in her arms? I'm not sure why Mary is on my mind so much today....
