Christmas Eve is a busy time around our household. We have two services and between them we go home, have dinner, watch a little Christmas Story, and then bring the girls back to sleep in the office while we get ready for the second service.
Sometimes we rush too much.
So tonight, after we got the girls settled into their sleeping bags and Jen was filling out some Christmas cards, we went and sat in the sanctuary for a few minutes. It was a time for me to just slow down and reflect, once again, on the beauty and the power of this amazing day.
Tonight we celebrate the fact that God come to us - as one of us.
Isn't it amazing.
God, the creator of all. The all-powerful one.
God came to us, became one of us, and did all of this because of the love that he has for us.
The message is simple, and yet, it is so powerful.
So this Christmas, may the story awe you once again, and may you experience the all-embracing love of God in your life.
