At the beginning of the month, I had planned to lay out an on-line advent calendar. One day, one post through the month of December. I fell a little short of my goal. The closer we got to Christmas, the more ‘hustle and bustle’ took precedence. A lesson for sure, since I abhor the ‘tyranny of the urgent.’ The one saving grace is that most of my pre-occupation that kept me away from my on-line advent work was spending time with the family and just enjoying the pace of the holidays. It’s no excuse mind you but I wouldn’t go back and change what I experienced to just get one or two (or seven!) more posts on my blog page.
That being said, I offer one more clip from my all-time favorite (Christmas and otherwise) films. This one comes from It’s A Wonderful Life. George Bailey gets a ‘second chance’ (experience of grace!) and his response is what we should all experience when we truly understand the saving grace given by Christ our King! Merry Christmas!
