Day 1: December 26


Happy December 1~

Day One

of preparing our hearts for the

BIRTH OF THE BABY!

But first

let's fast forward to

December 26~

when there are 364 shopping days left until CHRISTMAS.

What do you see? What do you feel?

Are you happy it’s all over on

THE DAY AFTER?

Think about it.

THE DAY AFTER~

any big day~

The Day After the vacation.

The Day After the great news.

The Day After the _________.

THE DAY AFTER~

Now what?

What difference does the BIRTH OF A BABY make in your life?

Does HE keep giving on THE DAY AFTER?

Look at the picture above of December 26th.

The captions reads~

“DID YOU EVER NOTICE HOW ALL THE PRESENTS

ARE FAR MORE INTERESTING BEFORE YOU UNWRAP THEM?

The let down. The emptiness,

The SOMETHING is MISSING or are you MISSING SOMETHING?

Why is that?

First of all,

so much of the focus has all been wrapped up in the preparations beforehand.

But isn't it in the unwrapping of the wrong"the things" which

we believe will bring us

HOPE

PEACE & JOY,

yet when it is all said and done

something is missing.

On DECEMBER 26th,

is there one unopened package under your tree?

Look at the cartoon above.

On the left side is a light where a little package remains in simple wrapping~

no bells and whistles,

untouched, ignored, missed,

just buried beneath the tinsel and the thistles.

Yet

A GIFT wrapped with Promises

which has the power to change

December 26 & the Days after that.

What is the one and only GIFT that delivers on all its promises?

It is all wrapped up in

THE CHRISTMAS STORY~

“For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior,

who is Christ the Lord..." (Luke 2:8-14)

CHRISTMAS is not just about a day

or a season

as it continues beyond

December 25

&

THE DAY AFTER

&

THE DAY AFTER THAT

&

THE DAY AFTER THAT

Because

it is all about

THE BIRTH OF A BABY

in your life.

THIS BABY

is the

GIFT

that unwraps

A NEW HOPE,

A NEW PEACE,

&

A NEW JOY,

into your mind, body & soul.

This GIFT that keeps giving as

One Size Fits All~

ALL people,

EVERY circumstance,

EVERY emotion~

ALL of us~

who have such different stories,

yet ALL are offered the same GIFT.

Have you missed THE BABY?

Have you unwrapped THE BABY and are being wrapped in it?

Or

Have you opened this GIFT, but have put HIM away for a bit

and forgot about HIM?

Or

Have you heard about the GIFT,

yet don't know if you really opened it or not?

Or

Have you not felt a need for this GIFT?

What difference has

BABY JESUS~

the main character of the CHRISTMAS STORY made in your life?

Are you ready to unwrap

THE BABY

who came from

RICHES

to be swaddled in our

RAGS

so that

HE

could clothe us all in

HIS RICHES~

because

Isn't that WHAT CHRISTMAS IS all about Charlie Brown? (watch video below)
