the Gift

Listening to : Blur (self-titled) faintly from upstairs

So Katya has been up for a couple of hours, peeling paper off boxes and unloading her stocking. Eating lollipops and chocolate stuff. We've had a lovely "Merry Christmas" from dear friends J&A and the kids shouting over the phone. And soon we shall head off to my gram's to eat and eat and celebrate the day.

The day has come. This is the day to celebrate the Gift through the giving of gifts. To admire and celebrate a legendary figure dressed in red velvet and shouting ho-ho-ho because of his love for children and because he gave gifts unconditionally to each and all, having understood the depth of that Gift. May we all be thankful for that Gift as well as the gifts given to mark His birthday. Thankful for the coming of Immanuel who now offers each of us another free gift if we want it. I believe this is the true Gift of Christmas.

Hope everyone has a holly jolly Christmas Day!
May it be Joyful and Triumphant!
