“I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas” is a beautiful Christmas classic. It’s also a powerful illustration of what inevitably seems to happen this time of year. Just like a blanket of snow, you cover up real life with trees, wreaths, garlands and bows; do your best to forget your pain with parties, food and beautiful music; and try to live – at least for a little while – in a world that reflects the world you wished you lived in instead of the one you do. But be careful, because you can be so intent on living in ‘Christmas World’ that you completely miss the real Christmas. So make some time to go to the manger. Because, when you do, you’ll see God in the face of an infant, discover love that fills you to overflowing, and experience what happens in your life because God has entered into real life.
