Christmas Eve

Even as an adult, I still find it hard to sleep on Christmas Eve. (Carrie Latet, pseudonym for Terri Guillemets, poetry collector)

Can you imagine what it was like for Joseph and Mary on that long ago night? It was the fulfillment of ancient prophecies, and they were part of it. They could only marvel at what God was doing. As we celebrate that day, what are we expecting? We might lie awake tonight, thinking about Jesus’ second advent when he will return to establish his promised kingdom.

… looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ (Titus 2:13).
