"CHRIST CAME TO BRING PEACE AND WE CELEBRATE HIS COMING BY MAKING PEACE IMPOSSIBLE FOR SIX WEEKS OF EACH YEAR..." A.W. TOZER
THIS YEAR - CHANGE THIS.
"During December most people do not think about the Advent, the coming of Christ, as the heart of Christmas. At best, the birth of the Savior is associated with the 'holiday season' along with all the other preoccupations. Sometimes it's hard to concentrate over the sounds of office party laughter, Christmas movies, shopping ads and traffic jams. Things certainly have moved a long way from that first Christmas night, haven't they?....
Jesus brings hope and healing to our lives. Set aside those things that take you away from Him. Even as you celebrate with loved ones, kneel before Jesus, the One whom the celebrations are all about."

Luke 2:13 "Suddenly a great army of Heaven's angels appeared with the angel, singing praises to God:
'Glory to God in the highest heaven,
and peace on earth to those with whom
He is pleased!' "
