In our kitchen, I have this dry erase board that I use for menu planning. The other day, it looked like this:
It's hard to tell, but all of those coupons are covering up this:
Isaiah 9:6 A Child will be born to us. God will give a Son to us.
That is Kaleb's memory verse for Sunday School. I felt very convicted that I had allowed the commercialism of the holiday to literally cover up the true meaning of Christmas. I immediately took down the coupons and made a vow to Selah - pause and reflect.
Silent night, holy night
