Emanuel - God with us...

Nine months after the angel appeared to Mary, God arrived. He pitched His fleshly tent on a bed of a stable...under a star. Jesus silently slipped into our world and breathed our air, felt our pain, became acquainted with our sorrows, died for our sins, and rose again to offer us eternal life.
                                                                                                                      - Charles Swindoll

Before Jesus' birth, He was a spirit...a part of the threesome...the trinity. After He took on the form of human life He now has a body...a body with nail prints on the palms of His hands...hands that someday we will see...the visible evidence of the penalty He paid for you and me!

The above picture was taken at a local farm...beautiful with the life-size figures...the story of the beginning of this season and the reason we celebrate it.

                                                      Have a blessed, blessed Christmas!
