Preparing for Christmas

'Tis the prepare for Christmas.  As we hurry through our days, driven by our expanding "To Do" lists,  I am reminded of a sentiment voiced by many marriage counselors:  "I so wish that this couple would have spent as much time and energy on preparing for a strong marriage as they did on preparing for a grand wedding."

The same can be said for Christmas.  May we spend as much time preparing our hearts to receive Christ in a deeper and more meaningful way as we do in purchasing gifts, decorating our homes, and baking goodies.
