Today we did some last minute Christmas shopping and that wasn't as bad as it might sound.
Actually fairly low key and the folks we saw were in good spirits...smiles and friendly faces all around.
Now Karen's busy making good stuff to eat, and tonight we'll exchange gifts with her kids, watch "Scrooge" (best version of Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" ever) and welcome Christmas morning with a midnight kiss.
Might take Mr. T out for a spin if the roads are ok...see if anyone wants a ride in my 1923 classic.
Mostly we'll take time to reflect on the meaning of the day...the miracle of God incarnate in the form of a baby born in Bethlehem and all that says about God's love for His people.
Without the miracle of Christmas there could be no Easter, and without the cross there can be no salvation.
So we'll try to put aside the glitter and sparkle, the decorations and distractions of this busiest of seasons...
- 2 Corinthians 9:15
Merry Christmas Eve, y'all...
