We writers in the blogosphere love comments on our blog posts. Comments feed us, encourage us, motivate us to keep writing. Comments tell me folks are reading the words God gives me to share.
Most comments are positive. Some of them sting for a moment. I value all of them and do my best to respond to each one. I have a reader who proofreads my posts. If he reads a grammatical error, he lets me know and tells me how I should have written. He’s a life-long dear friend, so I don’t mind.
I’m so grateful for Kathryne’s thoughts when she read the “Down with Christmas” post this week. Her comments were affirmation for me that others feel the same frustration about the way we materialize Christmas and ignore Jesus and the eternal significance of the reason He came down to us.
Here’s what Katheryn said,
I hear your frustration, Steven. You’re surely not alone in longing for His kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven. Here is how I handle December. Yesterday, Dec 1st, I purposed that the Prince of Peace would be present in my heart and mind all month. I’m focusing on Him, every day so that when I’m out and about, smiling as I shop, I desire to be a vessel of peace amidst a noisy, stressed world. As I see it, my job is to transmit my portion of heavenly peace that passes understanding. So go out and be His hands and feet, brother! 😉
