Happy Messy Christmas!
Last night Haydn spoke a Christmas message at our church service about having a messy Christmas!
Not one with too many drinks, not one where we forget what’s happening, no its all about having a Christmas that’s not perfect.
We dream of kink free Christmas’, one where it snows if we are in a winter climate, one where no one fights, one where we get the perfect presents, food, weather and conversation.
However the first Christmas so many years ago was far from perfect. A baby born in a manger (one that animals had fed out of!) I’m struggling to think about putting my baby in a cot that’s from Target…
A unmarried mother.
A stable instead of a nursery.
Yet it was a holy night…
Holiness and perfection do not co-exist. We think perfection in relationship and moments is all about lack of stress, but sometimes the messiest times can be the best.
Today Christmas day, our car has broken down. And I just reminded myself! Happy Messy Christmas.
Not everything is perfect. Even Christmas…
