A Charlie Brown Christmas

I love A Charlie Brown Christmas. It’s really not Christmas until I have watched it at least three times. So this morning was my first pass at it for the 2010 Christmas season…

This week officially kicks off the busiest time of the year for me. Just looking over my schedule from now until Christmas would probably intimidate the average person, but this is normal for me. If I’m being honest, I don’t love Christmastime the way I used to. I’m sure this has much to do with then insane pace of the season… the parties, the rehearsals, the services, the shopping, and so on, and so on.

And that is why I love A Charlie Brown Christmas… I relate. The commercialism, the consumerism, the parties, the rehearsals, the decorations; it all gets old really quickly. But the simplicity of the Christmas story…

… it’s refreshing. It serves as a reminder for why I do all that I do during the season. It puts back into focus what so easily gets lost in all of the lights and tinsel. It begins to brush away the jaded feelings that come with a season that has lost so much of its meaning.

It’s truth. It’s peace. It’s hope.

Be blessed this holiday season.
