While it is very likely that Jesus was not born on December 25, we can nonetheless take heart in that he definitely was born.
A line from a hymn is sticking with me today.
“Pleased as man, with man to dwell,
Jesus our Emmanuel.”
(From “Hark! the Herald Angels Sing”)
And while this was not the beginning of God dwelling with us (see John 1:14,) the manger scene nevertheless puts flesh to a difficult-to-understood spiritual reality.
I want to wish you all a merry Christmas and a joyous, happy holiday season. Thank you for your kind words and support in this past year! Moosey Love to you all.
