Wake up -It’s Christmas!

A Christmas Day prayer:

Dear Father, please, this day, give me the same wide-eyed wonder and excitement I had as a six year old boy in red flannel footie pajamas when I bounded down the stairs on Christmas morning.

As a grandfather, I pray for the same sense of awe when I celebrate the virgin birth of Jesus long ago to Mary, a teen aged Jewish girl from an obscure village in Judea.

Please help me hold that emotion in my heart everyday until You call me home when I can once again experience it in Your presence, Amen and Amen!

So how will you experience Christmas today at your house? A couple of my favorite songs to bring it home to me and hopefully to you too.

Please don’t lose the magic this year and the next and next…
