Never Lose the Sense of Wonder


Thursday, November 29, 2012

It's after Thanksgiving. Now begins the "Christmas season." I have never been very materialistic, and even less so once I became a Christian. And I abhor the god of consumerism, the spirit of covetousness that is indulged at this time of year.
I listen to CHRISTmas music.
And it never ceases to move me to tears of wonder and gratitude that the God of the Universe would in love humbleHimself and come to us - "in such mean estate" - and allow Himself to suffer so, to redeem His lost children. The second verse of this old Christmas carol continues to overwhelm me.
This is a choir, with the lyrics.

This is a powerful rendition by Andea Bocelli and Mary Blige with scenes from the movie The Nativity Story.

I invite you to listen and be in awe.

    Our God is an awesome God!! I am so disheartened by Christ being taken out of Christmas: in stores you are now told "Happy Holidays", Nativities are being banned in some states/cities, just where are we having Jesus 'sightings"?
