I love the Christmas season! It is truly magical. My family just had the gift of going to Disneyland as they transform it for the holidays. We had an amazing time at the happiest place on earth! My wife and I were actually talking about why its such a unique experience and why it feels so magical. The reason we sort of settled on was the complete immersion of the senses. Meaning the attention to every minute detail from the delicious smells they pump out of vents on Main Street to the impeccably clean streets and joyful character interactions. The beautiful and diverse architecture, the well planned rides, the twinkling Christmas lights, the warm drinks, the energy infused parades, the epic fireworks, the happy music, the childhood nostalgia....all of it. You literally walk into another world and enjoy the experiences together with people you love. You also spend a lot of money, stand in lines a lot and then you get on a people mover back to the real world. HA!
Anyway- I was left thinking about what heaven will be like. What will the streets look like, the sights and the sounds. What will the music be like?! What will it be like to enjoy it with the people we love? Christmas really is the time of year that points us to the real magic of who God is and the truth of eternity. The magic of Jesus being sent to earth to save us from sin. The magic of a relationship with him that lasts forever. I hope that you are able to enjoy a magical Christmas season with your family this year and be reminded of where our future with Jesus leads.
I have been been diligently finishing my new album and am now in the mixing and tweaking phase. I am really proud of this record and look forward to sharing it with you very soon!
