A gift of love.

Because of His boundless love,  
He became what we are
in order that
He might make us
what He is.
(Saint Irenaeus)

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. {John 3:16}

Be glad. Be joyful. Be happy for a great Gift is coming to you! Its not a gift you can see or touch or unwrap. Its far more precious. Its the indescribable sense of awe and wonder that comes when the celebration of Christ's birth reminds us once more that long ago God gave his only son to us in a form of a newborn baby.
How astonishing that is! And now we feel the amazement and gratitude in the knowledge that if we let it, Jesus can make a permanent home in our hearts, filling us with a deep and abiding love.
