The Holidays really are my favorite time of year. The world feels as if it's in love. Mankind is twinkling and giving. The world (no matter what the year brought) seems to redeem itself every time, just in time for a new year. Renewing everyone's hope and energy. To start and begin working on ourselves and life all over again. For some reason this time of year leaves us feeling as if everything from last year; the sorrows, joys, heartache were some how worth it and are worth doing all over again. That's the spirit of Christ. That renewed self.
