A25: Advent Meditation – Day 10

They came to the house where the child was and saw him with his mother, Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. They opened their gifts and gave him treasures of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.   Matthew 2:11 When I was in college a minister prophesied to me and my family. Placing his hand on me he said, “I see a crooked road.” Then another minister said, “I see an altar. You must bind yourself [...]

And she gave birth to her first son. Because there were no rooms left in the inn, she wrapped the baby with pieces of cloth and laid him in a box where animals are fed.    Luke 2:7 “Dear tiny infant Jesus… Look, I like the Christmas Jesus best… Dear tiny Jesus, in your golden, fleece diapers with your tiny, little fat balled up fists… Look, I like the baby version the best, you hear me!
