And the Word became flesh...

What a truly beautiful and remarkable statement.  Let's read it again in it's entirety:



In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.


Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of men.  The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.


...


The Word became flesh and make his dwelling among us.  We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, sho came from the Father, full of grace and truth.


John 1:1-5,14



What an awesome day to behold.  The promise made by God to his chosen people in sending forth a babe to become the deliver of man from sin.  Not the redeemer of manly things, but the promise of access to God, the promise of redemption of our sins so that we might be reunited with God and our family in heaven.


I am truly blessed this holiday season.  I have a job as does my wife.  We have three beautiful and healthy children who daily promise to deliver to use new and exciting viewpoints on life.  I find my time on earth dwindling and am trying to balance that out so that my children will know me a bit better than I think my father knew me. 


Today is truly a great day - Happy are we who believe within Christ - for we will surely enjoy the fruits and beauty of heaven.


God Bless you all,


Bill
