There Is Nothing Ordinary About Christmas

I awoke early in the morning and was sitting in the darkness, with just the light of the tree, on Christmas morning when my granddaughter Chelsea was 3 years old. She was just old enough to understand that she might receive gifts that were the very desires of her heart.

I heard little footsteps coming down the stairs and Chelsea walked into the room where the tree and gifts were waiting. She didn’t see me but went over to the area in front of the tree where her gifts were placed. And there she found the toys she had dreamed of. I heard her catching her breath in utter delight. She could hardly move she was so overwhelmed by what she saw.

There is nothing ordinary about Christmas. The coming of Christ is divine, breathtaking, awesome, majestic, and inspiring. The New Hope staff prays that you will discover the transforming realities of Christmas. May they be so real that the wonder of it all leaves you breathless, hardly able to move as you consider the majesty of the Savior, Christ the Lord, born anew in hearts of men and women, boys and girls, everyday.

Merry Christmas from New Hope Publishers!
