On a warm, (almost) sunny late fall Sunday afternoon, I finally had some time to clean out the flower beds. As I pulled, raked, cut and scooped, “Christmas is Coming” a song by Jason Gray was on replay in my head. The chorus goes like this, “Christmas is coming, the bells are ringing, hope comes alive as music fills the air. I hear the drumming, it won’t be long now, Christmas is coming will you be there? Christmas is coming, will you be there?”…I hate when a song gets stuck in my head!

An hour and a half and six wheel barrows of yard debris later, “Christmas is coming” was still on replay in my head, so I decided to look up the lyrics. The last verse struck me. It said, “I don’t want you to miss it, I know I have before, like the innkeeper who missed the wonder right outside his door. So open up your heart as Christmas passes through, just in time to wake the child asleep inside of you.” Beloved, my prayer for each of us this Advent Season is that we don’t miss the wonder of Christ this Christmas! It’s so easy to get caught up in the things we hope will make Christmas special, that we miss the opportunity to ask Christ to be born anew in our hearts and lives.

This Advent season, we are journeying with Mary and Joseph, as they discover they’re going to be parents. The Journey invites us to enter into the story of the angels “Good News” and Mary’s cousin, Elizabeth’s surprise pregnancy. Finally, we will “walk” that ten day journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem with Mary & Joseph, where the Savior of all people was born. As the song says, “I don’t want you to miss it, I know I have before, like the innkeeper who missed the wonder right outside his door. So open up your heart, as Christmas passes through, just in time to wake the child asleep inside of you.”

“Christmas is coming, the bells are ringing, hope comes alive as music fills the air. I hear the drumming, it won’t be long now, Christmas is coming will you be there?”
