Between Christmas and New Year

Finally the flu is coming to an end. It's hard to be ill during the Christmas season. 

In Denmark we celebrate Christmas, on Christmas Eve Dec. 24th. 
We eat, read the Christmas story in  Luke 2, sing carols and exchange gifts.
 
Due to illness I was unable to make all the preparations for Christmas as I usually do - this gave me time to think about the true meaning of Christmas: The birth of Our Savior Jesus Christ's, and all the things we are doing in this regard. 

Do we really need all the glitter, ornaments, food and gifts that we give?
 
He, the son of a king, descended into poverty. 

How can we pass through a haze of glitter, color, light, food and gifts and still remember the real purpose of Christmas? 

My wish is that we will try to have him in our thoughts more, live life a little better - and thus show our love for him.
