Have a Merry Christmas! Remember why we celebrate, how much He has given us over the entirety of 2007, and that what is to come is glorious all because of Him.
It is no secret that I have been blessed with the Christmas spirit this year. I have been listening to Christmas music since July at the office, attended yet another concert of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra in November, participated in the various services at Central Baptist Church of Fountain City, and have been awaiting this Christmas unlike any other. It has nothing to do with presents (all of which, as of 1:45 P.M. on Christmas Day, are still unopened under our tree) or even seeing extended family (Angela and I are home right now, preparing Christmas dinner by ourselves). Christmas this year is about the greatest gift that God can bestow - the care and love of a newborn son. While we still await his arrival (no contractions since 7:42 P.M. on Christmas Eve), there will never be another Christmas like this one in the Huddleston household.
