A Weekend of Anticipation

Everyone's hurrying around this weekend - attending events and parties, shopping for numerous gifts and writing out the last of the greeting cards.

Are we anticipating the event or the arrival?

But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. Matthew 1:20-23

Make this weekend one of anticipation over the birth of the Savior. The other stuff can wait - praise and worship of the soon-coming King can't!
