Christmas is a busy time for a Lutheran school! With only a week to go, we are in the middle of countless events and traditions. The Gift’s Galore Christmas Store is open for business. Christmas dinner tickets are sold out. Christmas surprises for our students and families are almost ready to go. And our teachers are busy helping their students in the final practices for the Christmas program while wrapping up lessons, projects and tests before our Christmas parties next Tuesday. We are definitely in the middle of the Christmas hustle and bustle, trying to ensure our list of things get done before we send our kids (and teachers!) off for a much needed break!
We also are reminded in the season of advent to pause. The Christmas music and lights and gifts and traditions are part of what we do at Grace Christian Academy but we do not lose sight of why. Christ has come. God with Us. We have received the greatest gift of all in the form of a baby in a manager. We hope the sense of wonder and awe does not miss you this Christmas as we focus our minds on a God who so loved the world that He gave us his Son. We pray his peace and his blessings over you and your family this Christmas season and throughout the coming year. Thank you for being a part of our Christmas traditions and for joining us in celebrating the coming of our King! Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
