As much as we fed our stomaches this year, with turkey and mashed potatoes smothered in gravy…
Our hearts and souls were fed by brothers bundled up together in footie pajamas,
By cuddles in a big chair when we’re all feeling a little under the weather,
By moments captured in time, of friends taking part in our life,
And a little boy, reading a story to his grandpa.
I love the holidays for the smell of cinnamon spice in the air, the warmth of hot chocolate seeping into my bones and the air of anticipation that pervades it all. But mostly, I love this time of year for the relationships: visits with family and too much food, joyous caroling with friends around our neighborhood, standing shoulder to shoulder with my fellow believers in a candlelit service at church. You all know my love of a good birthday celebration…and this one is the best birthday season ever!
The gift received through the birth of Jesus is not only the gift of salvation, but the gift of fellowship.
In turning to Him, we not only find ourselves in relationship with Him, but also in communion with other believers.
How has your soul been fed lately through the community of others?
