We Need A Little Christmas
"For I've grown a little leaner,
Grown a little colder,
Grown a little sadder,
Grown a little older,..."
...says the song, and it's true. Well, except for the "leaner" part.
I've seen it in others over the years as a pastor and now I'm catching a whiff of it myself. It's the tendency to look back instead of looking forward, of swapping hope for memories, of believing that there's less joy ahead than there has been before. Bunny and I love our family. We love our church family. We love where we live and what we do. But it's been a tough year.
So yes, we need a little Christmas, right this very minute.
Thank God for a chance to worship Christ at New Hope later today.
