Merry Christmas - Tim Challies

Good morning, and merry Christmas!

It occurred to me as I lay in mattress this morning that my household has turned a nook in terms of Christmas. We’ve transitioned from the youngsters begging to be allowed to stand up ridiculously early, to the youngsters wanting to have the ability to keep in mattress so long as attainable. And whereas there was one thing magical in regards to the lie-awake-all-night pleasure of little ones, I additionally don’t thoughts this barely calmer method.

Anyway, I anticipate I’ll start to listen to indicators of life quickly, after which hopefully our day will unfold based on our normal and much-loved traditions. We nonetheless do stockings for the youngsters, in order that they’ll start with these. Then we’ll cook dinner up a pleasant breakfast and eat collectively. Then we’ll get to these presents which were ready below the tree. That may deliver us to a little bit of a lull earlier than we get into the entire turkey dinner routine.

And I suppose that is the place we’ll differ slightly from our normal routine. We returned from my dad’s funeral virtually per week in the past, and I instantly bought hammered with a brutal virus that had me in mattress for 4 dayssomething that’s unprecedented for me. Yesterday was my first day again on my ft. Inevitably, Aileen got here down with it as nicely, and she or he is now down and out. So which means cooking responsibility will fall largely to me! Fortunately cooking a turkey dinner is inside my pretty restricted listing of skills, so I feel we’ll be okay.

Regardless of the day holds: From my household to yours, Merry Christmas.
