November 30, 2012 word prompt is WONDER.
I wonder if I could write again here in my blog. It seems that my hands are full to wander off along the little rectangle of my keyboards. Most often I am hampered by the internet ban at the office or burdened by acquiring our own connection. The latter is a no no as of yet because my third world purse wouldn't let me get that liberty.
Lately, I wonder if it is something good for me that way. Too much liberty makes one take things for granted. Limitations in a way is good. We try to work on what we have and celebrate them.
I wonder if it would be fine to celebrate the birth of Jesus daily. I do. Does it make me peace-loving, generous and kind? Well, most of the time, when I dwell right there at the center of WONDER. I need to be where the waters are always fresh and the grass is always green. He is there.
Thinking about the first Christmas at that Holy Ground of a stable, I couldn't help but wonder how much heavenly display of magnificence the shepherds have witnessed, for them to fall to their knees trembling? What kind of vision and sound did they see and hear, of the winged heavenly being, who proclaimed the coming of the Son of God to Earth and mankind?
I want to ponder upon this magnitude of God's eternal love for His people, making Jesus be born in the flesh and next making Him the perfect sacrifice for sin. It is the greatest love of all!
Isn't it enough for people to turn their eyes upon the one who, in all compassion and meekness, submitted Himself to mortals and humiliation, so that we me be reconnected to the Father?
Wonder of all wonders, is the son of God.
A Savior Is Born
When the angel announced to the shepherds the birth of Jesus he said:
"Be not afraid; for behold I bring you good tidings of great joy which shall be to all the people: for there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord." Jesus is our Savior!
What good news!
