We love these days and cherish every second of them!
Christmas Eve morning started with lots of coffee, a snowy walk for Harpo, and time with the Lord. We have a few traditions since we are always with the Nelsons for Christmas Eve. We enjoy a Christmas family activity, opening pajamas, dinner, and waking up early the next morning.
We adore these traditions and look every year to them with anticipation! But more than anything we are crazy for Jesus! Before, in-between, and after all this celebrating we completely and fully want to celebrate Christ.
He was born of a virgin that we might be born of God.
He took our flesh, that he might give us His Spirit.
He lay in the manger, that we may lie in paradise.
He came down from heaven, that he might bring us to heaven….
That the ancient of Days should be born.
that he who thunders in the heavens should cry in the cradle….
that he who rules the stars should suck the breast;
that a virgin should conceive;
that Christ should be made of a woman, and of that woman which himself made,
that the branch should bear the vine,
that the mother should be younger than the child she bare,
and the child in the womb bigger than the mother;
that the human nature should not be God, yet one with God
Christ taking flesh is a mystery we shall never fully understand till we come to heaven
If our hearts be not rocks, this love of Christ should affect us .
Behold love that passeth knowledge!”
