In the busyness of the holidays, it’s easy to miss the wonder and awe of Christmas. Today, let’s be deliberate about observing the world around us. See the beauty. See the joy of the season in the faces of children. Notice and embrace the creative and colorful decorations surrounding you. But may we also be sensitive and see the sadness and the burden that some are carrying in their hearts. See everyone as a creation of God, and as a person who has a story to tell. See beyond the surface – see the heart. Aren’t you glad God sees us?
