7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. 8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. 10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
It’s so easy to forget what it’s all about, the reason that we celebrate it at all.
Because of this ease of distraction, I plan on taking off the next week from blogging. While I love this blog and I love writing for you, and I love writing in general, it has been a busy month (and year), and I feel stretched a bit thin. I will resume after the New Year, in the hopes that I can spend time with my family and friends this season and keep my focus on what matters most to me: God, family, and friends.
I hope that you find the time to do the same.
