Did you ever notice how all the presents are far more interesting before you unwrap them? (Cartoon caption)

It’s the day after Christmas, and the cartoon quote is pretty accurate, isn’t it? The anticipation is often more fun than the actual experiencing of opening the gifts, and the 26th of December is sometimes a gloomy and sad day. If that’s true, we would do well to remind ourselves of the greatest gift of Christmas, the coming of the Christ Child, and rejoice.

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! (Philippians 4:4).
