Rhonnie Scheuerman’s Early Morning Christmas Inspiration
For All In Need Of Some to Get Through This Wonderful Day
Though our kids are now teenagers , they haven’t lost the magic of Christmas morning. My wife and I love it. When they come down the stairs, their eyes still bug out at the massive pile of gifts they see. We make that pile as big as we can. We shove the coffed table beside the tree and stack gifts on it just to add height. We spread gifts our across the floor beneath the tree, around the recliner. The pile is enormous, and we’re not commercializingl Christmas!
The vast majority of those gifts are basic needs socks, toothbrushes, notebooks , shows. We stock up all year on whatever;the kids need. wrap it up, and add it to the pile. We use extra large boxes for the smaller gifts, just to make the pile bigger. We still read Luke’s Christmas story to recall the Savior’s birth. We still snuggle with hot chocolate and classic Christmas movies. Our teenagers still embrace out traditions.
But best of all remains that wide-eyes on Christmas morning when the kids see their gifts, because their sense of wonder helps me remember God’s extravagant grace.
Father, You delight in giving and this season is proof. Open my eyes to the wonder of Your grace. Bill
