Maybe it’s just me, but I seem to be having a harder time each year focusing on Christmas, or at least the significance of the birth of Christ.  I used to reach the gospel accounts and reflect on them.  Now I do read them with my kids, but it isn’t hitting me like it used to.  With family commitments and the swirl of everything around, I’m finding it hard to just take time to reflect with Jesus on what he did.

Are you finding that?  While to want to keep Christ at the centre of Christmas, with all the commercial stuff as well as all the church stuff, does Christ stay at the centre of Christmas?  Perhaps I need some kind of shake-up to really see Christ and for his glory to resonate in the depths of my soul as it did for the shepherds.
