As an adult, my perspective has changed. I am older with responsibilities and those long ago feelings are now gone.
I sometimes long for the excitement to return, but know that some of those joyous feelings came from receiving gifts.
I now long for feelings of wonder and amazement that come with a deep and true meaning of why I celebrate Christmas.
John 8:12 (NIV)
When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
