somehow christmas

Can anyone hide out in a corner where I can't see him?" GOD's Decree. "Am I not present everywhere, whether seen or unseen?" GOD's Decree.(Jeremiah 23:24 MSG)

thanks to my friend tom, whose a missionary in wales, and a phone conversation at 11:23.. this Bible verse is the message i feel given for this christmas. somehow, it seems strangely fitting in a way that probably only makes sense in my own head. but during the holidays we see a lot of deco that tries to get a point across. at times the message is rather skewed (ho,ho,ho? i mean really..) and other times it borders on the truth (manger scenes). and there are different levels of enthusiasm, and different ways of dealing with the season (some love it and go all out, others hate it and overlook as much as they can). and so into this christmas, the verse pops up, reminding me that it is about God, and that He is there, whether we try to hide from the holiday and it's meaning or not, whether we see Him or just a bunch of lights and trees.

so merry christmas. a holiday i don't particularly like, a meaning that i do.
