How much greater will our song be....

Tonight I watched "The Nativity" with my family. It was a really good movie showing the story of Christ's birth. I was particularly struck with the thought of how awesome would it have been to be one of the shepherds and see the heavenly host announcing the Savior's birth glorifying God. It brought to mind this line from the song "In the First Light" which I heard on the radio the other day (hadn't heard it in years)....
Hear the angels as they're singing on the morning of his birth,
But how much greater will our song be when he comes again to earth!

I long for that day! Recently the Lord has been giving me a greater and greater desire to see my Savior face to anticipation of his glory which I have never had before. Oh, what a day that will be! As I consider Christ's birth, and the laying aside of his glory as he came to earth as a baby -- I am reminded that he is no longer laying in a manger, but seated at the right hand of the Father in glory!

Merry Christmas!

I'm a terrible blogger.

My apologies to those (if any) of you who check back regularly only to find that nothing has changed. *sigh*

I will try to get better about posting short updates more often.

Here's a quick update: I love my job. And let me just say, that Christmas is a great time to work for a general contracting firm. (shout out to our great subs...thanks for the gifts) Yesterday I received a 2 lb bag of pistachios. Just now Donna came by to offer me a truffle (dark chocolate caramel, mmmm). Oh, and I have not even eaten my lunch yet cause I kept stopping by the breakroom to sample the cheese balls.

I don't just love my job for the food...the people are great, too (although I have gotten more grief for being a MD fan in the past two months than I have gotten the rest of my life), and I am enjoying the work...but year end is super busy!

Also...this is the earliest I have ever finished my Christmas shopping. By last week I had already purchased all my gifts for my family, and now I just have to pick up a present for my cousin and a couple things for friends. This weekend will be filled w/ baking!!! I can't wait!

Jo and I picked out a tree the other night... pict's to come.
