To my family, friends, and clients!
I just wanted to take a moment to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas! Jen, the kids, and I are fortunate to be spending time with my sister and her family as well as my parents. Over the past couple of days, we have been texting, talking, and leaving voicemails–making plans of what to do, meals to eat, and where to open presents. The anticipation continues to build, even as I write this email to you!
But…through it all, I find myself focusing on things other than the true meaning of Christmas. Does anyone else feel like this?
Then, as I was taking my kids to school today, I heard Paul Harvey’s Christmas broadcast from 1965, “The Man and the Birds.” It hit me in the gut. It instantly reminded me what this season is all about. As I was nearing my house, I looked out the window and saw a sign on a motel I pass every day. It says, “Jesus is the Reason for the Season.” (See picture above)
After hearing Paul Harvey’s 1965 Christmas broadcast and seeing the motel’s sign, I realized that God is constantly pursuing me. He will even use the radio and motel signs to connect with us.
If you are in need of a reset on this Christmas Eve Eve Eve, I invite you to listen to Paul Harvey’s Christmas message, “The Man on the Birds.”
