Have you stopped to wonder at the wonder of Christmas, or have you been so busy wandering that the wonder of Christmas has been forgotten? Is Christmas day only for eating, presents and an afternoon sleep after all the food.

Wonder (noun) means a feeling of amazement and admiration caused by something beautiful, remarkable or unfamiliar.

We wander through the season, busy with all the events, shopping, work parties that by the time Christmas day arrives we are exhausted.

So, this Christmas day take time to stop and wonder with amazement at not just the circumstances and beauty of Jesus birth but the reason for his birth. If Jesus had not been born, we would not have salvation, a lamb would still need to be sacrificed. That is reason enough to wonder at the wonder of Christmas.

Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas day wherever you are and a safe holiday.
