December 27 - The Feast of the Nativity is such a welcome respite in this year of darkness. The cookies, lights and decorations offer a temporary distraction of happiness. But the reminder that God, the Creator of the universe, has made a guest appearance still startles me. Why would the Master of the World lower himself to suffer our pain and anxiety in this crazy world? Simply so that you and I could get to know Him. Zoom has been no replacement for a true face to face. That is Christmas...God comes to us in person.
