Will see a great light;
Those who live in a dark land,
The light will shine on them . . .
"For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us;
And the government will rest on His shoulders;
And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Eternal Father, Prince of Peace." Isaiah 9:2, 6
I love Christmas. I love Christmas!
Last night the church I am a member of had its Christmas program.
It was so fun!
Everything about Christmas can be full of delight. But I tell you, just getting into the beginning of Christmas, the birth of Jesus, the whole story (the shepherds, the angels, the animals) is delightful.
I think God gets a kick out of doing fantastical things at times. What a cool idea to have the Savior of the World being born in a stable among gentle animals. And then God throws in shouting angels and lots of raggedy shepherds.
What a feast for the eyes, for all the senses!
God is so creative. We sure don't serve a boring God.
Let God bring His creativity into your life today. Let Him have His way. Let Him have the freedom to create some Christmas magic for you and yours.
Thank you Jesus for the greatest story ever played out in all of time.
