Is it my imagination, or are there more Christmas lights up this year than there was last year?
It seems like every street is trying to outdo the other, at least in our neighbourhood.
The displays range from the understated and tasteful to the “oh my goodness, how do they pay their power bill?”
Check out the two places on Hammonds Plains Road between the BMO and the church. You can’t miss the glow in the sky.
Everywhere we go, there are lights, red lights, green lights, blue lights and clear lights.
Now I don’t know all the reasons that people decorate their homes, but I’m sure that there are a variety of reasons. But the other night, as I was driving to the church in awe of the work that many people had put into decorating their homes, it dawned on me that whatever the reasons for the lights, the result was that we had decorated for Jesus’ birthday. It’s like candles on a cake or banners from the ceilings. The people of the HRM are shouting out “Happy Birthday Jesus” with their displays of Christmas lights.
Don’t forget next week, in all the hubbub and excitement, to wish your Saviour a happy birthday.
Have a great week, and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
