I believe that God continues to work in my life today through this story of Christ's birth so long ago.
I am a shepherd, startled to hear the good news of the angels, but eager to go and see for myself.
I am Mary, aware that somehow God is using me to accomplish things to big for me to imagine.
I am Joseph, not understanding fully that which God calls me to do, but following as fatihfully as I can.
I am the innkeeper, busy and frazzeld, but making some room, somehow, for God to be born.
I am the Wisemen, on a journey of discovery, bearing my gift to be given to glorify God.
And Yes, I am the angel, proclaiming in my own life, the glorious good news that God has come into the world and we shall never be the same.
I believe in Christmas and with my life, today and throughout the year to come, I will proclaim that Christ is born, that Chrismas is here, that God is with us!
