At the end of November after paying a cheque into the bank, the girl behind the counter asked me, ‘are you already for Christmas yet?’ That’s right. The end of November! As I walked down the high street, I started thinking about the things that needed to be done and wondered whether I was remiss because I hadn’t considered it earlier. In truth, two weeks after being asked the question I am still no nearer, but have thought of a question of my own. So then, this is my response to those who have their cards sent, presents wrapped, tree decorated and turkey in the deep freeze; ‘are you ready for Jesus yet?!’
Forget the tinsel for a minute and ask yourself the question. Are you?
Yours in anticipation! Gareth
