Do you remember waiting for Christmas to come? When we were young, it seemed to take FOREVER to get here.

You know what I’m talking about. The anticipation builds inside you every day, threatening to bubble and spill over? Christmas just couldn’t get here fast enough!

Now as I’m getting older, the season comes and goes way too fast. Why is that?

Part of it could be because time flies when we age. 😉 However, could the biggest reason be we’re caught up in the busyness of the season that we’ve lost the excitement we once had as children?

Have we forgotten to remember?

Let’s take a step back in time to when we were kids. How about we caught up in the excitement again?

Most of all…let’s get caught up in the excitement of that first Christmas morn.

The first winter star led the path to the baby Jesus.

The best gift of all!

Matthew 2:1-2 (NIV)

After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.”

Winter Star (by J Reid/M Selby/B Ezrin)

This song is sung by Canadian country star, Johnny Reid. It talks about waiting for Christmas to come. Jeff sang it at an event in London, Ontario. I want to share his version. Listen to the words.
