It's no secret that I love Ann Voskamp's blog "A Holy Experience". My throat began to tighten as I read this post yesterday, namely the part near the bottom where she says (speaking of the author of the scroll) "who believed the inner mystery of Christ in Christmas before there was a Christmas". And then it all came true. Everything the writers and believers of Old longed for, came true. And living centuries later, after the birth of Christ, am I reflecting on Jesus' birth in the magnitude in which it is due?
Lord, thank you that you fulfill your promises. Help me to believe this Christmas season with the assuredness and intensity of our brothers and sisters before us, before the birth of your Son.
