Before the holiday rush began, before gift wrap, inflatable Santas, and the general belief that if you are a recording artist you must do a cover of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”…there was a baby. And a mother. And a plan of redemption made real in the unsuspecting shadows of a simple manger. This is the reason for not only Christmas, but also the peace and hope that we’re blessed with in every season of the year.
So that’s why, as we celebrate Christmas this year, we’re remembering several things.
We’re remembering that this is the greatest Christmas story.
We’re remembering that this is the greatest Christmas light.
We’re remembering that this is the greatest Christmas gathering.
And we’re remembering that this is the greatest Christmas present, sent with no gift expected in return.
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Merry Christmas to you and your family! :)
