The holidays are a mixed bag if you ask me. We’ve got the beauty of God’s gift of His son, next to the ugliness of fighting over the latest and coolest gift for your kid. There’s this amazing little family made up of a young faith-filled couple in awe of the God-child within travelling miles away and laying a baby in a manger, and there’s your own squabbling, stressed out family trying to get everyone together for one meal without a fight. You’ve got that first Christmas, then you’ve got this one. How do we pull it back a bit?
My suggestion? Simple. Listen to this.
Yeah, I know. It doesn’t fix everything. The gifts still need to be bought. They family still needs to crowd in. But, there’s one moment in place every time I listen to that song—the remembrance of that silent night, that holy night, when all was calm and all was bright.
In an effort to get us back to simple, there's only one more thing to say: Peace. Go find His rest and sleep in His Peace.
