Christmas

This day, this night, the Light comes.

Christ came into the world for you–and you came into the world for Him.

The world will be still tonight.

There will be lingering. Longing. We will long for this wonder to go on. One Christmas candle will flame in the quiet. This cannot fade–none of this can ever fade. “For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given (Isaiah 9: 6). God is with us.

God stays with us.

The Christmas candle burns hot, gives its light, give its Light–and the world lights up, and Christmas goes on forever now.

Christ, the always Gift for all our days.*

from The Greatest Gift Ann Voskamp, 258-59.
