What do you want for Christmas?
It’s a common December question. Some respond with very long lists–ask any of my children. Some people just shake their head, “Nothing.”
But there’s one who always knows what he wants for Christmas and it’s always the same thing.
“Jesus, what do you want for Christmas?”
Sweet. Simple. And radical enough to turn my New Year upside down. Jesus wants me–every thought, every passion, every broken dream. He wants me and every chamber of my heart.
Deep breath. Slow, deep breath. OK.
Happy Birthday, Jesus.
