One by one the days count down to Christmas Day. Presents are bought, cards sent and trees decorated with tinsel and lights.
We run frantically around, with hardly a moment to catch our breath; are we going to be ready? Are people going to be happy with their gifts? At Christmas Christians celebrate the best gift to ever be given to our world- Jesus’ birth, bringing hope, love and peace. In all our preparations, in the joys and stresses of this season, may the peace that Jesus has brought to us be real.
