The Day After

One of the most glorious messes in the world is the mess created in the living room on Christmas day. Don’t clean it up too quickly. (Andy Rooney, late TV commentator)

Isn’t it part of the holiday fun to pick up the gift wrappings and trash after the fun of opening and playing with those precious gifts? (Except maybe for the broken toy parts or the missing batteries.) Anyways, don’t lose the joy of the season so soon after the big day. Remembering the purpose of it all will help you to maintain the joy and good will of the holidays.

Those who trust the Lord will be joyful. (Proverbs 16:20)

Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again—rejoice! (Philippians 4:4)
