Saturday’s Sabbath Moment

The rush is on… four days and counting. I’ve come to the realization that everything will probably not get done. There is just not going to be enough time. The thing is we all get the same amount. Twenty-four hours in a day. That’s the way God designed it.

Let’s just take a moment to stop. Stop cooking and running… cleaning for company… stop… just stop.

Here in this time of stopping let’s remember who we are celebrating. Take a few moments to read the story. It’s found in the second chapter of Luke. Quick, go find your Bible and gather those in the house. Take time to sit and read Luke’s account of the birth of Jesus.

This is what we celebrate. Ancient words passed on to us through generations. 

Consider the journey Mary and Joseph took to Bethlehem. Picture shepherds in the field. Imagine a great company of angels in the dark sky. Go with them to Bethlehem to see. Take a peek into the manger. There he sleeps. The child who would save the world. The greatest gift ever given. 

The waiting is almost over, and the next four days will rush by in a blur. Let us not forget that there is always enough time to celebrate Him.
