The Word Dwelt Among Us

24 December 2012

(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.
rejoice! rejoice! emmanuel / shall come to thee, o israel.

  1. Dear Lizzy,
    I really love your blog! It is so very inspiring, encouraging,and sweet.It is also very pretty!:)

    My name is Sarah Elizabeth(Elizabeth must be a very popular name because I know at least ten bloggers that have it)! I'm fourteen, and I come from a family of 17.

    As I read your blog today, I noticed that you have written a book, this, I thought was really neat! I am also writing a book with my younger sister.:) So I Clicked on the amazon link and started to read it,and I really like it! I was wondering if you would like it, if I made you my first sponsor? You wouldn't have to pay I would gladly do it for free, And if you would like would even be willing to do a review!

    Keep up the good work!

    Sarah Elizabeth

    P.S. I have a friend in England, who use to live in the U.S., we practically grew up together. So when I read the first part of your book it made me think of my dear friend Anya.
