What Does Christmas Taste Like?

I remember all the good things my Mom would make leading up to Christmas. They were usually seasonal, temporary goodness. Things that you would not expect to have a chance to taste at any other time of year. Several years ago I asked my Mom about a recipe for one particular Christmas treat. To my dismay she could not remember it. This was not her normal response for a recipe as she could usually come up with them from memory. I miss you Mom.

As I was putting my thoughts together for this Advent Devotional I passed a framed Bible verse that hangs on one of our walls. It is Galatians 5:22. It’s not exactly what I had in mind for what Christmas tastes like, but I kept coming back to it. “The fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self control: against such there is no law.” Maybe this is what Christmas should taste like. It’s not seasonal and has eternal value. It’s a good recipe to remember all year long.
