"How quick I am to speak and to string words into sentences and spin sentences into paragraphs to fill any void in chatter. But I see how spectacularly the arrangement of a few words speak the stark and wonderful truth. Silence speaks that for which words are worthless...As carefully as You orchestrated the appearance of the Redeemer on earth, so carefully are You orchestrating Your activity in my life...Oh, let my words be few, so that I can hear You as You whisper to me..."
As a family, read Luke 2:6-7. There is such a simplicity in the way those verses are put together. We forget how simple the true meaning of Christmas really is. Christmastime is busy, and hectic, and noisy. It's easy to get caught up in the 'hustle and bustle' This holiday season, take time to be still. Take time to be quiet and listen for God. As a family, spend a few minutes in silent prayer together, reflecting on the true meaning of Christmas and on how God has provided for your family throughout the ups and downs of the past year.
