So… I was in Office Max looking for some supplies last week and the store was already playing Christmas music. Of course, my first response was one of annoyance. How can they already bombard us with advertising and promotion-yada-yada-yada. Anyway, after walking around the store and not being able to find what I needed, I kept hearing these songs and slowly began to remember what Christmas is all about. My mood began to change as I thought about the birth of Jesus and the gift we have all been given. I guess we all have a choice during the holiday season. We can be overrun by the craziness of this time of year or we can rest in the peace of our Savior.
