The Christmas That Never Ends

The song “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas” is a Christmas classic. It’s also a powerful illustration of what can happen this time of year. Just like a blanket of snow can cover the earth and hide all the junk, trash and ugliness, you know firsthand how the wreaths, garlands, parties, food and beautiful music can cover your heartache, struggles, pain and failures. But eventually the snow melts and eventually Christmas ends – and everything that was still remains. Unless you take the time to do what matters most about Christmas: take the time to journey to the manger. When you do, you’ll see God in the face of an infant, discover how everything you need but can never get on your own is a gift from God, and experience the reality of abundant life in the midst of real life. That’s the heart of Christmas – and it’s the Christmas that never ends!
