What is the draw to watch those movies over and over.....year after year? Is it the warm fuzzy feeling we get with the "happily ever after" endings? Maybe it's our own desire to have that "perfect" Christmas. I think it's the underlying message of compassion and hope these movies bring into our heart. Isn't that why Christ came? To be our example of compassion.....a compassion so great He gave His life for us, and to give us hope.......hope in eternal life, hope in never being alone, hope that no matter what, there is always Someone in our corner.
So today, This Day, as you make memories of the Christmas season with your family and friends, remember the message of compassion and hope that Christ brings to you every day.
Peace and Joy,
Psalm 86:15 (NIV)But you, O Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.
