Gwyneth's December letter

O Come Let Us Adore Him
This year I picked up a pack of Christmas cards with a Retro look, which I have to say I recognise may not be to everybody’s taste.  The one thing that stood out to me was noticing the words, “O Come Let Us Adore Him.”
Many people often say, “Oh Christmas is for children.”  In Christian terms this is rubbish.  Christmas is a time of adoration and celebration for the wonderful, precious gift of God’s only Son, Jesus Christ.
We feast, we give gifts in reflection of the generosity of God in sending his Son to earth to bring the Light of Christ into our lives.  It is only right and fitting that we should worship, praise and adore God’s Son in the best way we can.  The Christmas Narrative recounted in Luke’s Gospel is so awesome and mystical that it sends shivers down my spine.  I have avoided using the word “magical” because it is not magic that brought Christ into the world, yet, the experience we gain from Christmas is a magical experience.
The Christmas Story never ceases to amaze me or bring a feeling of excitement to my whole being. (Yes - I know I am nearly 70!)
The angels did it, Mary did it, the Shepherds did it and the Wise men did it.  So, “Come Let Us Adore Him,” at this special Christmas time.
“O Come all ye Faithful.............”
Happy Christmas Blessings, from Gwyneth.
