A very happy Monday to you m'dears! Well, it's currently 64 days until Christmas, (anyone else like me and already excited?) I was reminded yesterday, as the "feeling" came back to me. You know what I mean? That feeling we so know and love, the feeling when Christmas suddenly feels near again; decorations start to appear in the stores, Christmas gift ideas begin to flow through our minds, we start planning little Christmas soirees, and the most important thing of all... we think about celebrating our wonderful Jesus'. It's exciting, it's wonderful, and even though it's still three months away, it brings us a wonderful sense of hope that good things are coming. :)
So what is it, that makes the Christmas season feel so exciting?
A sleigh full of presents?
A gorgeous Hamptons pool house?
A beautiful table setting?
Or maybe pretty fairy wings?
Well, while all these things are beautiful, there is something about Christmas that is far more spectacular, creating excitement, life and light...
Out of all the Christmas songs, this is my favourite lyric: "A thrill of hope, a weary world rejoices, for yonder breaks a new and glorious morn". What a wonderful truth! I truly believe as we enter this new season that we are going to be filled with a HOPE like never before. And it's not just an "excitement for Christmas", but a long-lasting, deep sense of hope that fills and floods every area of our lives, catapulting us into this next season.
And it begins today. So let us step into this new season of great joy with boldness and excitement! Have a great day friends :)
