Note: this is a bit of a flashback post, as it was written a year or so ago, but I think it still rings true.
It’s Christmas, the “most wonderful time of the year.” My favorite season. I’ve been doing some unexpected thinking this Christmas though-thoughts that came from an odd combination of hearing Christmas songs, and reading a friend’s facebook postings describing the current development of their unborn baby. Oftentimes the descriptions I hear about Christ coming to earth, either in song or word, make it sound as if it was just a quick step out of Heaven. A long step, yes. A drastic, humbling step. But just a step. As if one minute He was in heaven, and the next minute He was that little baby in the manger.
