You need Christmas every year. You need it to remember how God loves you so much that God came to you right in the midst of real life. You need it to remind you of the way life really is when you are overwhelmed by all the greed, ugliness, violence and suffering that hits way too close to home. And you need it to experience how Jesus gives you a new heart, new eyes, new ears, new hands and new hope regardless of what you’re going through. No wonder Christmas is called the most wonderful time of the year.
