As we look forward to Christmas this year, I am excited and look forward to another Christmas. Not necessarily the perripheral things that accompany this time. You know, the dusting off the tubs that have been stored away or the menagerie of lights... will they work this year or not? Or the stress of shopping and lines and honestly some times some very poor attitudes. The exciting part of Christmas comes back to the thought of God doing something new in history that not only marks a period of time, but forever changes people's lives. Christmas is that reminder that God has done something new and continues to make all things new. Maybe not that old string of lights, but hearts, attitudes, longings, desires... That is what He is about! Emmanuel, God WITH us. He has made the pathway sure and true. The question now is, are we with Him? The writer of Psalms 119:1-3 [NLT] tells us, "Happy are people of integrity, who follow the law of the LORD. Happy are those who obey his decrees and search for him with all their hearts. They do not compromise with evil, and they walk only in his paths." And later in verse 35, "Make me walk along the path of your commands, for that is where my happiness is found." This pathway can change the way we think... It brings us happiness! It helps our hearts to return to following after Him. This is a good thing! The Staff at Quaker Meadow Christian Camp pray that you will walk on His path this season as you look towards Christmas!
