After a worship service of lessons and carols this morning, Banu and I are preparing for a Christmas dinner. Tomorrow morning, we set out to visit my mother in Tennessee.
Some may say that we missed being with her for Christmas. I would respond by noting that, according to our plans, we will be with her for most of Christmas! We don’t celebrate our Savior’s birth the way the commercials—with their frantic rat race approach—insist. Take a deep breath…and relax. We have eleven more days to celebrate.
