Love Came Down

This is too good not to share...perfect for this time of year with the hustle & bustle of Christmas.

I think I'll take it away & read it often this Christmas season. Especially since I'm feeling the weight of Christmas, preparing for a baby, and the weight of all my to-do list. I don't want to miss a moment due to waiting to rush what is to come.

"whenever Christmas begins to burden, it’s a sign that I’ve taken on something of the world and not of Christ. Any weight in Christmas has to be of this world. Christ came into this world as grace to lift all the weighty burdens.

Christ the Babe comes to us in Christmas as Christ the Savior comes to us on the Cross —seeking only our embrace."

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

-Isaiah 9:6
