Have Yourself a Real Christmas
Christmas time is when the gap seems the greatest between the expectation of how things should be and the reality of how things really are. And so it’s a season of hope often followed by a twinge of disenchantment. It should be peaceful. Joyful. Hopeful. Magical. In many ways, the first Christmas was very similar. But this advent, when we release these expectations and embrace the reality of the season, we can regain our joy and be set free.
