Something to Think About

WHAT an eventful couple of weeks.

From EDXIT, Ed Balls voted off Strictly Come Dancing, to all the mad buying on ‘Black Friday’.

Perhaps Ed has found his vocation at last.

Could we see him as a Dame in a Pantomime next year? Nobody expected him to last for one week let alone ten.

He made such an impression that even Craig Revel Horwood secretly admired him on the dance floor.

Everywhere one looked, either on the television or in the national press, there were adverts for ‘Bargains on Black Friday’.

But the thing is, it has now lasted for over two weeks. Haven’t they been able to sell the stuff?

I am sure that the people of Nazareth never imagined that Jesus the Carpenter’s son would make such an impact on the world.

But he did because, on that day his friends would have called ‘Black Friday’ which we call ‘Good Friday’, he changed the whole world forever.

This is the Church period of Advent when we prepare to remember the birth of Jesus Christ at the first Christmas.

Did Mary and Joseph ever imagine or were prepared for what lay ahead for them and their infant son?

What does life hold for each one of us?

Remember that the dark sad events of ‘Good Friday’ turned to joy and happiness on ‘Easter Sunday’ when Jesus Christ rose from the dead and ever lives to bring new life to us now.
