How 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!"
