the entire old testament of the bible is filled with stories of people- generations upon generations- waiting and hoping for the Messiah, the promised one who would rescue and deliver. and then! a virgin mother. a baby whom angels and stars announced... whom wise men and Godly women recognized. quietly and humbly a king arrived in a stable. quietly and humbly the hope of the world came for you and for me!
unbelievable, all of it, yet i do believe. a story so familiar, yet so spectacular. please don't let me miss the wonder of it all, Lord. my hope is not in gifts, decorations or recipes. my hope is in you Lord!
