The beauty of the life of faith is that giving glory to God is in season all year long. God is worthy of our highest admiration and our deepest trust. This sustains our weary minds no matter the circumstance, and gives us a healthy sense of perspective.
It is clear from story of the nativity, that glory to God permeates all places from the earthy kneeling of the common shepherd to the heavenly music of the angel chorus and everything and everyone in-between.
This is a celebration of an all-powerful yet humbly loving God.
Now, just as then, only those who are paying attention understand how very life altering this idea is.
Remember that you are an active participant in the story of love. May the glory of God surround you this year.
