On this day we celebrate the birth of a child; such simple and glorious thing, new life in the world, new hope.
What’s more, this day remembers this particular child, when God crossed over forever to humanity. No longer separate, no longer distant, God among us, Emmanuel.
When Jesus was born, God have us the forever lessons: Love, Forgive, Show Mercy, Help One Another. The first shall be last, and the last shall be first.
We are enough as we are. Do not judge, instead, love.
Let it be so, these lessons that began as a lowly child two thousand years ago. Celebrate with family, celebrate with friends, with those you love.
Celebrate the birthday in Bethlehem, celebrate Jesus, celebrate love. AMEN!
