Not That Far From Bethlehem – My 25 Favorite Christmas Songs (Dec 20)

We’re not far from Christmas, quite literally now, since we’re five days out. And this song is a reminder, to me, to not get so caught up in the busy of last-minute gift-buying, and baking, and gift-wrapping, but to take a minute and remember why this season is so hopeful in the first place.

It’s one of the reasons I enjoy Advent so much – it’s the anticipation. We’ve been on a journey, and now we’re nearing the end. The culmination.

The fulfillment of our hope.

Now faith is assurance of things hoped for, proof of things not seen.

Hebrews 11:1 WEB

What are you hoping for this Christmas, whether it’s that certain gift, or something a little more?
