After Christmas                  

I wish we could put up some of the Christmas spirit in jars and open a jar of it every month. (Harlan Miller)

It’s sad, isn’t it, that the “Christmas spirit” often doesn’t last beyond Dec. 25? Is it because our attention for so long has been on the hustle-bustle of decorating, partying, and gift-sharing? Now that they’re done, we may really be let down and need some rest. If, however, we hang onto the true Spirit of Christmas, the gift of love and peace in Jesus, we don’t have to have a letdown.

My words are always true and always here with you. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away. (Matthew 24:35)
