Retraction



OK, so after reading my post from yesterday and thinking about it a little more, I wonder if I wasn't just a tad bah-humbugish. Yes, it was a bad day. Yes, today wasn't so hot either (in any sense of the word), but it's possible I've lost perspective. I seem to be doing that a lot lately. I can probably blame it on holiday stress, but the truth is...I need to get a grip.

My son and I just finished watching "A Charlie Brown Christmas". I love Linus' speech about the meaning of Christmas. No matter how many times I see it, and despite the fact that it's a child's cartoon, I'm awestruck at the word of God every time I hear it. I love hearing the Christmas story in the old King James and I love that it was just told on prime time television on a major network. God is good!

If you're like me and feel slightly freaked out by the holiday madness (or by life in general); if you're pipes are frozen, your wallet is thin, or your to-do list is wildly long, take a moment to reflect on the Savior and the meaning of the season. Things just might come into perspective a little.
