O' Holy Night
Reflections on Christmas from 'A Homeschool Mom':  http://thehomeschoolmomblog.wordpress.co...oly-night/

Quote:Wow; I can’t believe it is almost Christmas Day! It seems as if this special time of year comes flying in and, just as quickly, soars right back out the door. Like a whirlwind of activity and responsibility, the holidays push through leaving a mess of wrapping paper and discarded bows in its wake.

Somewhere during the busy-ness of the next few days, take a moment to remember why we celebrate. (If you can, take more than just a moment, take several.)

It wasn’t the pretty trees, the sparkling lights, or the packages that began all the celebrating. Christmas is about one special, holy night. A night filled with its own frantic activity, the bringing into this world a new baby boy; one who would change the fate of mankind.

Tonight of all nights, I desire to take a few moments focusing on nothing but being still. I want to bask in peace and quiet, praying that the Lord would bless this night and the day to come.

“And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.” - John 2:7-11
