“Cease to dwell on days gone by, to brood over past history. Here and now I will do a new thing…”
Some say, “Christmas is not Christmas without children.” Or some say, “Christmas is for children” and we aren’t children anymore. We’ve grown old, our children are scattered, we don’t get excited, we don’t find Christmas very meaningful anymore. Hogwash! Read the Bible: Moses was 80 when his annunciation came; Simeon waited for years to see God’s gift; Elizabeth was old when she became pregnant with John the Baptist; Anna, the prophetess was 84. Annunciations are for all ages. Listen for your’s. Such annunciations are what Christmas is all about!
