Immanuel

Bonnie, at Faith Barista, asked, “What are your hopes for Christmas this year?”

Immanuel.

“God with us”.

My hope, that in amongst the opening of gifts, the festivities, and the get togethers with family, people do not forget.

Do not forget the baby born in Bethlehem, was God, with skin on.

That this child would one day grow up to perform miracles, love the unlovable, and provide salvation for the broken, the lost, and the disheartened.

No ribbons and bows, no electronics or games, no clothing or jewelry, will ever be able to touch the most incredible gift of all time….

That the King of all Glory, gave us the gift of Himself.

“The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel”–which means, “God with us.”  Matthew 1:23 NIV

  1. Linking up after you at Faith Barista – I loved reading your thoughts, and agree with all my heart. Especially liked this, “No ribbons and bows, no electronics or games, no clothing or jewelry, will ever be able to touch the most incredible gift of all time….” So true! Have a meaningful and memorable Christmas season with your family!

  2. Yes! “My hope, that in amongst the opening of gifts, the festivities, and the get togethers with family, people do not forget.” Oh that is so my hope, as well, Dawn. For all of us to not forget in that “busy-ness,” the “needs” and “wants.” Thank you for such a beautiful reminder.
