Twas the Day After Christmas

Twas the day after Christmas and finally everyone is stirring…ready for the second biggest shopping day of the holidays. After a nice and quiet Christmas Day today we brace the crowds and the rush just to see what is what on the day after Christmas!
On another note- I’ve watched several movies this week- some on the Hallmark channel (I know…there goes the man card); one in the theater (The Blind Side…excellent movie); and then one yesterday (The Proposal- a gfit to my daughter…). What strikes me after these ‘feel good’ movies is how desperate we all are for significance in the eyes of those closest to us. We all hunger to be loved and to love. We all hunger to feel powerful emotions and to experience life. Yet, for far too many of us movies are as close as we get. We never quite capture the passion, we never quite manage to experience the rush we see actors portray on the screen. On this day after Christmas, my wish is that I- and others in my family- would discover the passion and rush of life where we live—instead of seeking to do it vicariously through movie characters…let’s endeavor to live this life to the fullest. Merry Christmas, Happy New Year…and may God’s presence be more real today than ever before!
