It's ALMOST Christmas

The idea of the theme came to me because it IS almost Christmas. I thought I would find something else that was "almost"--almost tall enough, almost finished, almost anything but Christmas. But the best shot I could come up with was Christmas--Almost Christmas.

In case you didn't figure out how it shows almost Christmas, look again carefully. The creche before the altar at the church is up and ready for Christmas. And since it is almost Christmas instead of already Christmas, the baby Jesus is not present. The figure will be added at the Children's Mass on Christmas Eve.

I wonder if the other headbangers will find some other "Almost" or will also find that it is Almost Christmas. You can check from the links in my sidebar any time in the afternoon on Wednesday.

Here are some more shots I almost got:

Very appropriate for the time and season! This year we are ready for Christmas, thiugh it will be just the two of us. My "Almost" is more of a photo op moment.

I chose the lighter topic (Santa Clause), but I appreciate the way this post points to Christ. Even before the incarnation, we see the "scarlet thread" through the Old Testament, showing how Jesus Christ is the point and purpose of it all. Jesus' humanity puzzles many because he was truly man and truly God. Two natures-- without confusion, without change, without division, without separation. Great thoughts to ponder through the Christmas season. He came and he is coming again. There was no room for them in the inn, but there IS room in my heart for the Lord. :-)
