IT'S CHRISTMAS DAY!

I hope everyone reading this is enjoying a cozy, lazy morning surrounded by loved ones and lots of good food.  These photos were taken earlier this month by a friend, but the reality of today over at our house is that we've got our Christmas jammies on even well past noon as the monkey bread bakes in the other room—and I wouldn’t have it any other way. 😊

“One of the most glorious messes in the world is the mess created in the living room on Christmas Day. Don’t clean it up too quickly.” - Andy Rooney

Whether today finds you full of joy at all the fun festivities, or perhaps full of some other emotion, my prayer is that you would take some time today to be reminded of the glorious truth the entire Christmas season culminates in on this day: Heaven, reaching down to invade the darkness with a bright, shining Light.  The Thrill of Hope Himself, Who entered a weary world over 2,000 years ago. 

“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6, ESV)

The beauty of this Hope is that it is certain, even when everything else is not.  Jesus is real, He is active, He is present, and He loves you and me so much that He was willing to enter a world of sin and brokenness, because even the perfection of Heaven if we weren't there with Him is not what He wanted.  He wants you, and He wants me.

“You didn’t want Heaven without us, so Jesus you brought Heaven down. My sin was great, Your love was greater. What can separate us now?” - Hillsong Worship

Below are seven quotes that help me fix my heart on this beautiful, life-changing truth.  I hope they fill your heart with the true peace and joy the message of Christmas offers us all. ❤️
