I wish I could say that I have recovered from Christmas, but this has been my most hectic holiday season ever.  We had 60 family members for Christmas Eve dinner and gift exchange.  (And that’s just our family that lives in town…)  It was a wild and loud evening!   My brother must be a saint to allow that many people to invade his house.  I didn’t take the time to count, but I think that 30-40% of them were children.  Being part of a large family is a blessing, but I was ready for a calm Christmas day (with only 4 of us).  That was my one day of peace.

I think back to the humble stable birth of Jesus Christ, and wonder what He thinks about how His birthday is celebrated now.
