Many of the holiday activities can eclipse the wonder of God’s sacrifice, given to us when Jesus became a man. Everyone is so, so busy at this time of year.  But it’s important we PAUSE and remember that first Christmas day…and let the “wonder” rise up in our hearts.

So close to Christmas,

Only two days away.

No time for reading,

No time for play.

Always a time of too-much-to-do,

It should be a time for us to renew.

PAUSE with us now,

Find hope, joy, delight,

That came in our Saviour,

That first Christmas night.
