Last night we watched a Charlie Brown Christmas. It's obviously a classic that always triggers holiday spirit. They just don't make Holiday movies that convey the same message anymore: the reason for the season is Jesus (also I would like to apologize for that rhyming...I didn't mean to do it and I refuse to change it). I think that's what I love about it so much. Linus brings all of the hustle and bustle back to where it needs to be.
Side note: I love the original very much for the reasons listed above, but I also like this rendition created by the Scrubs cast (I'm also very excited that I have figured out this whole posting of youtube videos thing). I apologize that it's not as wholesome as the original Charlie Brown Christmas, but it's Scrubs...what can you expect?
Enjoy this, my friends.
Pray that I can get through these next three weeks.
This is the verse to memorize for the series Brent is giving:
"For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so that we can do the good things he planned for us long ago."
Ephesians 2:10 (NLT)
