Emmanuel. God with us.
In the middle of our traditions. Under our trees. Behind our smiles and within our reach. Giving good gifts. The best gifts. The “from above” gifts that aren’t bought in stores.
God with us.
Unwrapping His great heart and giving us gifts of family and beauty and people who love us even in our imperfection.
When the tree is crooked and the flour is in our hair and the paper bits leave a trail through the house.
God with us. Loving us even when we’re distracted with christmas.
Christ in the midst of our mess and making it the most wonderful.
Merry Christmas from our family to yours!
