With all of the negativity we may hear on the news, we sometimes need to hear something positive. As we proceed through the Christmas season, we need to stop and hear the good news. Instead of rushing because of the expectations of the holiday, we need to hear what the angels were saying!
On that first Christmas night, the angels brought good news not only to the shepherds, but to all of us. We should remember this news and carry it with us not just in the holiday season, but every day! The Christmas season should allow us to reflect on God's gift of His Son and the promises held in His arrival on earth. We can then find courage in the gift of redemption that God has given us!
Embrace the true Good News of the season!
Thank You for the gift of Your Son. Help us to always remember the true reason for our celebrations. In His name we pray, amen.
