22. The Christmas Story

No, not the movie, that’s already been covered here.

I’m talking about THE story. THE reason we even celebrate this holiday in the first place. THE story you’ll hear Thursday night – or Friday morning, depending on when/if you head to church during the holiday.

It’s a story we all know, the birth of Jesus. Such a simple story about a baby being born, yet it’s the most important story you’ll hear. I love hearing the story of Jesus’ birth and the way it’s told. This past week at church our pastor’s sermon was called “There’s Something About Mary.” He talked about what made God choose Mary and the responsibility he entrusted to her. It was a great sermon.

Jesus is the reason we celebrate and as you sit in church sometime during the next few days or even if you’re just sitting at home celebrating with family and friends, think about the Christmas story and what it means to you.

As far as that other Christmas Story, I just saw a commercial for the marathon that will be on Thursday and Friday and one of my neighbors has a replica of the leg lamp from the movie in their window. Awesome.
