Place Wonder and Awe at Center Stage

Every time we look at our Christmas tree, let there be wonder and awe in our heart as we behold the beauty of its glow.  If the things of Christmas (such as our Christmas tree) become commonplace, then we are missing that specialness that makes Christmas sparkle.  What are some things that take your breath away?  Things that make you say, “Wow,” or, “Whoa,” or “It’s so wonderful!”  Your house doesn’t have to be the highest wattage on the street in terms of Christmas lights, but your heart can be super responsive to beauty and truth and sacredness so that even at the glimpse of a single candle flame, you give pause to what it means and represents.
