There is so much more I wanted to say this Christmas . But my kids have been sick, and I've been getting ready for our trip (which is what I'm supposed to be doing now, too). And I want to say something beautiful, and Christmassy, and full of the hope and wonder that Christmas is...but I'm too tired to think deep thoughts. I can only be still. And know. And worship. And thank Him for coming. Because of all the things I don't understand about God, this is the largest. What made that dirty stable and the death He was headed toward worth it? Maybe this is why I've cried this year every time I see a baby in a manger, or heard a single verse regarding His coming. Maybe it's because He didn't have to, but he chose to. Because His love is so great. Because I am so undeserving. Because He came to bring us hope.
Please jump over to my husband, Brian's, blog to read his Christmas sign- off. I told him I wanted to steal it, so I'm claiming it for all of us. Merry Christmas from our family to yours.
