December

Some thoughts, disorganized though they might be, as we move into the heart of December...

Preparations for Christmas in full swing - shopping, planning, finishing up projects. How am I preparing my heart? How am I getting ready to receive the newborn King? He is Immanuel, God with us, come to earth to redeem us and give us hope.

The Creator of the universe come down to this little planet, as a helpless baby Himself, wrapped in humble human-ness to save a prideful humanity.

What is this Christmas we talk about - this time to celebrate the beginning of the greatest sacrifice, this glory shrouded in skin for my sake, and yours. This is not about the shopping or gifts or stress or food. It is about gratitude and awe, humility and wonder that we are so loved, that God would send His only Son to walk with us, to walk for us...
