Drop and Roll

This time of year, I’m reluctant to let go of the celebration of our Savior’s birth. I want to cling to it, and revel in it, enjoying the sheer wonder of all it means to us. I’m overcome with amazement and joy at the thought of what God has done for us, and how much He loves us.

me and Dockers (2)Our little dog, Dockers, used to roll in the grass with great abandon and joy. She’d walk out into the yard, sniff around, select the perfect, then literally flop down, roll onto her back and scoot around, using her back feet to propel herself. She’d have a big upside down doggie grin on, obviously enjoying herself tremendously. And when she was finished, she’d pop back to her feet and look at me as if to say, “You should try it, dude! It’s awesome!”

This is how we should celebrate life; just drop down and roll, reveling in the good things God has given us, praising Him and thanking Him for all we have, no matter how much or how little that might be. In the overall scheme of things, most of us have plenty.

God is with us! He loves us! He will never forsake us!

Drop and roll!

But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Luke 2:10
