It’s the season of hope, peace, joy, and love. It is also the season of anticipation, busyness, and perhaps, dare I say it? Exhaustion! In the school, staff and students are rushing about doing tests and projects, writing report cards, doing Christmas crafts, preparing for Christmas concerts and Christmas chapel, selling various things in assorted fundraisers, collecting items for different charities, gathering items for upcoming theme days, and, in general, running around in multiple directions simultaneously. Yes, it is a BUSY season in the school.
Outside of school, things are also busy but not always as lighthearted. Hearts are still breaking. Finances are still worrisome. Relationships are still straining. Even as the world seems to be spinning out of control with wars and rumours of wars, crazy inflation, and schedules that run at breakneck speeds, we must remember that there is nothing that is a surprise to God. He has come to us, as a baby born in a manger, so that we might have peace and be reconciled to Him. It is Jesus who willingly takes on all the other “stuff” that often overwhelms us. Let us turn to Him this busy season and just breathe in and out and allow His presence to calm us.
Merry Christmas! May the Lord’s blessings shower upon you now and all through 2024!
In Christ’s service,
