We're not big on roasting chestnuts.
Jack Frost is at work as temperatures drop below zero, a nose-nipping cold for us west-coasters.
This evening we'll hear the choirs singing carols and bundle up to keep warm.
One tiny tot - and several adults - with eyes aglow may find it hard to sleep tonight.
Tomorrow will be turkey and trimmings and family together. Much joy, laughter and love.
But as the angel of the Lord announced so many years ago, there's more, much more to celebrate...
“Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord." Luke 2: 10-11
As you contemplate Christmas and it's true meaning - the birth of Jesus - may the peace of God rest in your hearts and minds.
With love and gratitude,
In The Midst
