[Day 20] It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

It’s the most wonderful time of the year.
With the kids jingle belling and everyone telling you,
“Be of good cheer!”
It’s the most wonderful time of the year.
It’s the hap-happiest season of all.
There’ll be much mistletoe-ing
and hearts will be glowing when loved ones are near.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

Seems like half the people I know either just had a baby or will be soon. Of course, that's not entirely true, but it sure does seem like it! These little blessings are such a treasure, coming into this world from the safety of their mother's womb. Totally helpless. Utterly dependent. Precious. Each little miracle welcomed with celebrations and gifts, laughter and tears, joy and hope.

I imagine that Jesus' birth was anticipated in much the same way, but only a select few actually knew of the circumstances of His birth. His birth meant the arrival of our Savior and King. Our Mighty God in the flesh. That's what we celebrate at this most wonderful time of the year. With family and friends, yes, our hearts will be glowing when loved ones are near!

Isaiah 9:6 says-

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
