Merry Christmas 2013

Merry Christmas, reader! 

The God who flung the plantes into space and kept them whirling around and around, the God who made the universe with just a word, the one who could do anything at all-was making himself small. And coming down...as a baby.
"But it's too wonderful!" Mary said and felt her heart beating hard. "How can it be true?" 
"Is anything too wonderful for God?" {the angel} Gabriel asked.
...
Sure enough it was just as the angel had said. Nine months later, Mary was almost ready to have her baby. Now, Mary & Joseph had to take a trip to Bethlehem...but when they reached the little town they found every room was full. Every bed was taken.
...
And there, in the stable, amongst the chickens and the donkeys and the cows, in the quiet of the night, God gave the world his wonderful gift. 
The baby that would change the world was born
His baby son...
Mary and Joseph named him Jesus, "Emmanuel"-which means "God has come to live with us."
Because, of course, he had.

-from He's Here in the Jesus Storybook Bible 
(the Kindle version is on sale for $1.99 on Amazon)

One of our family's favorite songs for the season: You're Here
This one is beautiful too
"I'll hold you in the beginning. You'll hold me in the end.
Every moment in the middle make my heart your Bethlehem. Be born in me."
