Preparing for Christmas.


December Daily: Day Sixteen

Tuesday, December 18th, 2012

This Sunday was Gaudete Sunday, Sunday of Joy. “Rejoice in the Lord always.”

It’s easy to think that for the Christian “rejoicing”, having “joy” looks like Joel Osteen. A big smile and a song in your heart. Sometimes it’s that easy, but how can our Father tell us to rejoice always when we’re faced with horror? How can we have joy when we live in an evil, ruined world, where we break, where we lose, where we die. Where one man’s evil will bring such nightmares to life.

For this reason only; Christ entered here. He came into our cesspool to redeem us. Because Emmanuel, He is with us and He is good.

The girls were thrilled that today, finally, it was time to go get our Christmas tree!

We made room by moving our bookshelf, that alone was one of the best parts, a nice spot to run or sit and read a book.

Or take a nap. It’s funny to me that a  big empty room can be more exciting to the babies than a playground.
