I've Had Amnesia!

ClockHow else would you describe the phenomena of going from September 1 to December 1 with little memory of anything in between?

They say the older you get, the faster time flies.  As I talk with people of all ages and stages, that "age thing explanation" seems largely myth.  Most people I talk to are experiencing the same amnesia I'm suffering!

So before more time flashes before our eyes, some thoughts on these days before us.

This morning I read that God poured out on His Son "the oil of joy!"  I love the word picture of oil and joy juxtaposed .  It makes me feel "poured over," "luxurious," "comforted," "soothed."  It makes me smile.

As we begin this all-rolled-into-one busy, reflective, joyous, lonely, sorrowful, happy, laughter-and-tears co-mingled season of Christmas-may we luxuriate in God's "oil of joy!"
