There has been a Bible character that over the last decade or so, that has kinda jumped out at me around Christmas and afterwards.  Simeon.  The guy in Luke 2:21-35 that Mary and Joeseph met when they brought Jesus in for his circumcision.  

I heard a monologue given from the viewpoint of Simeon years ago and it struck me.  Then the other day I read this over at another pastors' blog.

And well, again, God is challenging me with some stuff from Simeon again.  What is my hope built on?  What am I looking forward to?  Would I follow if I was "moved by the Spirit" (vs27)?   How big a deal is Jesus?

There's about a zillion other questions that start to pop into my head, but then I breathe deep and remind myself that this Jesus; He loves me. As I am.  He wants me to know him.  So I dust myself off and move forward, thankful for the grace and mercy he has for me.

Today was a good day, I'm off to bed.  Good night folks.
