|(from The Nativity Story)|
"Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel."
— Isaiah 7:14
It's the simplicity, humility, and at the same time, profound magnificence of our Saviour's birth so long ago that still wrings my heart and brings me to tears. More beautiful than the lights, the music, the decorations, and the food is the great love He held for His sinful people: a love so powerful and all-encompassing that He chose to send His Son for our sake. May we dwell on that truth as we celebrate His birth today and tomorrow.
Blessings on your Christmas celebrations, sweet friends.
