Overjoyed... Grateful...


...relieved that Christmas is so much more than turkey, cards, presents, carols, tinsel, snow, sleigh-bells and santa!!


It's more than what we can ever know, hope for or imagine.


"Christmas is much more than the sum of all our memories and expectations. It goes far beyond a family celebration or a retail event. It is about the entrance of the almighty, eternal God into human history on an astonishing rescue mission. It is about a gift a million times greater than the most opulent present. It is about a peace far beyond any human ceasefire.
It is about Jesus. It is about love on a scale we can barely imagine." (From introduction to the Christmas week, Closer to God, © Scripture Union)

Have a very joyful, peaceful, hopeful CHRISTMAS ... !!
