Getting Ready

The house is decorated. Two big trees are trimmed. Manger scenes are carefully placed. We're getting ready. I can hardly wait.

...Awaiting something special...eagerly anticipating...
We're preparing to celebrate in honor of the coming King, born all those years ago, humbly, as a baby in a manger...So that I (and you too!) could be reconciled to God. Imagine that!

God, the creator of the universe and all that's in it -- our heavenly father -- wants to be close to his children, so He became a child! That's hard to fathom, but what a joy to embrace!

"Pleased as man with men to dwell, Jesus, our Emmanuel."
