The Anticipation, The Story, The Joy…Let Us Rejoice

Rejoice, sing Hallelujah!

It hardly seems possible that we Baby Boomers could have such a gloriously exciting month ahead of us, in the midst of these brutal economic times. There’s always the option of celebrating Christmas daily, but few of us know how. Meanwhile, we can carve out this December as perhaps the greatest December ever. What’s stopping us? Rejoice? Or, rejoice!

  1. Being thankful shouldn’t end with the last day of November. The months of each passing year do not operate as individual chunks of time. They all flow together not bound by time and space.

    The bowls of pies and ice cream taste great now but slow me down when the elevator breaks and I have to take the stairs three flights up to visit a sick friend at the hospital. But walking 30-minutes a day does.

    Watching back-to-back-to-back-to-back episodes of my favorite cop drama will satisfy my urge to make sure they stick it to the bad guy. It doesn’t help my compassion when the homeless person comes in off the street looking for help at church. But turning off the tv and reading my Bible 30-minutes a day does.

    Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice! (Philippians 4:4 NASB)

    Rejoice now. When Winter’s dreary days bring Spring storms which bring the oppressive heat of Summer, rejoice that you get to experience it all!

  2. Whoa David, you did not hijack. Roadblock maybe, but no hijack. Just kidding. I love your insights and especially love your company. 🙂
