To Know...

I was riding back from Beeville, Texas yesterday with three good friends. We laughed, chatted, contemplated, and debated over many things...one of which was where to eat lunch- I won....did I mention, I was behind the wheel?

At one point in our journey- I was changing channels...and came across "Feliz Navidad" playing on the radio. What made it extra special to hear, was the fact that the artist playing and singing it was sitting next to me in the front seat.
(Darrell Smith, "Ordinary Christmas," great new Christmas CD, by the way), but I digress....
Hearing him on the radio and knowing him, made me realize-

It is one thing to know the song- another thing to know the artist singing it.

It is one thing to appreciate a sunset- another thing to know Who created it.

It is one thing to stand in awe of a mountain- another thing to know Who built it.

It is one thing to look at the stars in wonder-another thing to know Who Hung them.

It is one thing to know about God- another thing to have a relationship with Him.

One week from today we will start the celebration of HIM coming HERE!
It is one thing to know it is someone's birthday -another thing entirely to Know The Birthday Boy.
God, thank you for coming here, to us...so we can truly Know You.
Grace and Peace,
