Isaiah 9:1-7
“Stepping from the throne, he removed his robe of light and wrapped himself in skin: pigmented, human skin. The light of the universe entered a dark, wet womb. He who angels worship nestled himself in the placenta of a peasant, was birthed into the cold night, and then slept on cow’s hay. In the Grip of Grace, Mary didn’t know whether to give him milk or give him praise, but she gave him both since he was, as near as she could figure, hungry and holy. Joseph didn’t know whether to call him Junior or Father. But in the end, called him Jesus, since that’s what the angel said and since he didn’t have the faintest idea what to name a God he could cradle in his arms. Neither Mary nor Joseph said it, but don’t you think their heads tilted and their minds wondered, “What in the world are you doing, God?” Or, better phrased, “God, what are you doing in the world?” .- Max Lucado This Christmas let us give praise to God for the ultimate gift that offers us hope, peace, joy and especially LOVE. Love was born on this day. Give praise, honor and glory to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Merry Christmas and God bless you! God Loves Ya;)
