Christmas Eve

Merry Christmas to you all!
It is Christmas Eve morn 2006. I am up early while the rest of the house sleeps. In the midst of the busyness of the season and the increased commercialism, I am reminded that there is a reason for this holiday. As much as the world moves us in any direction but the one that faces the manger.
This morning, I think of all our family and friends who are represented in a large stack of Christmas cards. Wishes of holiday cheer that found their way to us despite our many moves in 2006. I am grateful for each family member, each friend, each memory disturbed by the handwritten and typed greetings.
On this Sunday morning, in the stillness and quietness of morning, I pray that none of us are so busy that we don't take time to contemplate the true meaning of Christmas. May we all take time to kneel and face the manger. It is the reason we even have Christmas, that long ago a babe was born, wrapped in swaddling clothes. To a young mother, who was probably unsure as all new mothers are. May the birth of Jesus be more than songs sung, more than a story read, more than a lighted display on someone's lawn, more than a childhood memory. May it be alive and real in our hearts as we spend time with family and friends.
I treasure you all and are grateful for you.
Merry Christmas from the Williamson family to yours!

Merry Christmas Williamson family! What a well-written post Sue! I could clearly imagine the image of the birth of Christ as I was reading your post.

Love you all!
