Snow or Sunshine. Fruitcake or Cut-out Cookies. Wassail or Eggnog. Nativity Scene or Train Set. Santa Claus or Saint Nick. Maybe all of the above – and more?
Whatever ingredients you choose for a magical Christmas, two are absolute necessities: Awe and Wonder. You can’t have a truly Merry Christmas without them. But busyness, struggle, and, well…just life…can strip away the awe and wonder and leave you deflated and cynical instead.
This Advent Season, come get a dose of what you really need. Put a little Awe back into this season of Wonder.
For many of us, Christmas just isn’t right without curling up and watching the classic tale, “It’s a Wonderful Life!” George Bailey lost the wonder. He began his life with enormous hopes and dreams, and with his beautiful wife Mary at his side, anything seemed possible. But misfortune strikes and he finds himself lost - all the wonder and joy sucked out of his life. He sees no alternative but to end it all. At the very last moment, a supernatural intervention shows him how wonderful his life really is, and the awe and wonder come rushing back! It really IS a wonderful life!
