God is in the Small Stuff

"Unless we choose to bring the meaning of Christmas to our celebrations, we will miss the meaning altogether.

There's someting about waiting that prepares us for arrival.

Christmas is a time of contrasting emotions: hope and despair, peace and conflict, togetherness and loneliness. Advent helps put them in perspective.

Getting on and getting off the holiday fast track have this in common: They are both choices.

We will never recognize the significance of Christmas until we slow down enough to think about it."
--from the book "God is in the Small Stuff at Christmas" by Bruce and Stan
