our tree is still up

i’m just not ready to move on yet.

Joy to the world, the Lord is come
let earth
             her King 

i’m still finding myself in awe of His coming

Oh the glory of it all
is He came here
for the rescue of us all
that we may live
                                 -David Crowder Band 

all day long i found myself humming this tune-only with my minds focus on wonder, i inadvertantly sang it this way: “Oh the wonder of it all  is He came here….”

i’ve been thinking about the whole ‘New Years’ thing.  
            the new goals and resolutions and words

and i’ve been thinking about Christmas.

and to me, i’d like to back it all up a bit. 

because it seems to me that it’s Christmas
        and  His coming
             that makes any new thing even possible.

       His coming as a babe in that manger because there was no room elsewhere
                so He could come and make His home in my heart

oh the glory of it all….
for the rescue of us all….
we will never be the same…..

may this next year not be more of the same
but instead more
