Miraculous was the birth of Jesus. Trying to understand it with human perspective is impossible. However, the Virgin birth is like the resurrection. It is a miracle, and miracles cannot be proven. They simply exist. The star that guided the Wise Men also was a miracle. No other star has done or ever will do what that star did that night.
We have a rich heritage in Christmas. It is a time of reflection on the past and hope for the future. Christmas has its own sights, sounds and smells that no other time has. The gathering of friends and the warming yule-tide spirit of families cause this holiday to be so special. However, we need to remember that “Jesus is the Reason for the Season.” His virgin birth is the miracle of Emmanuel – “God with us”.
My wish for you is a Merry Christmas, and a prosperous New Year. May the Christ Child make his light to shine in your heart this holiday season.
