The Least "Christmasy" Christmas Ever

This is the least "Christmasy" Christmas ever.

I am not even sure what I mean by that.

All I know is that the typical almost giddy happiness of the season was absent this time around. The typical feelings and busyness and Christmasy-ness was absent.

I don't know why.

I am not even sure if that's necessarily a bad thing.

I had lots of meals together with family and friends.

We did all the typical things - exchanging gifts, sponsoring families, Christmas Eve Candlelight Service, etc. - that we typically do at Christmas.

I am still trying to wrap my head around this more mellow, almost melancholy Christmas of this year.

One thing I know is that no matter what I may be feeling, Christ is come and we need what Christ ushers in more than ever.

I want to see the power of God through his church. I want to give and live in the love of Christ. I want to share the peace and joy of Christ with others. I want more of Christ than I have ever before.

SO what IS up with that feeling??I too have experienced this feeling this year... It is very odd and I am wondering what it is about.God how are you touching us differently this year? How are you moving among us and spreading the news of your son differently? Are we missing the message? Are we to caught up in this fallen world that we are blind to you workings amooooong us??? This is a good question to ponder I woould love to have discussion about this sometime!
