My daughter, son in law, oldest granddaughter and only grandson are in Washington D.C. right now with a group of interns from their missions school. We got a cell phone call from them when they were in front of the White House. When our six year old grandson got his turn on the phone, instead of telling Papa they were at the White House or had seen the Capitol Building or some other spectacular sight that day, he reported with excitement that they were going to have pizza for dinner. I love the house decorating, goodie baking, gift giving, card sending, party going, light looking, concert attending, tree fetching, and carol singing that Christmas time brings. But, all of those wonderful things are just the pizza, not the Main Thing.
Thankful above all for the Main Thing this Season…Jesus.
