Joy of Christmas

December 4:  The weather has become increasingly important to me in my position as principal.  I need to be aware of storms, extreme heat or cold and of course when snow is coming.  I really don’t like talking about the weather, but it is something I do quite often.  Actually, the weather affects us all and is something we all have in common.

December and the Christmas season might be the same.  We all have December in common, although unfortunately December and Christmas mean different things to different people.  It is such a busy time with so much pressure to make everything just so that some forget why December can be such a joyous month.   I know you are glad that God made our eternal life, just so, by the life, death and life of Jesus.  That is what I will work hard to celebrate this month.  Now, when will that first snow be?
