20 Days Until Christmas
Under the obvious lies the beauty of miracles...
Some think Mary is doubting here, but she is not. Like Zechariah in the temple earlier in this chapter, she is shocked and unable to comprehend how something can come from nothing.
But God is all about something from nothing.
The Virgin birth may seem impossible, but it is only "impossible" to those who don't truly believe on faith in a mighty God who can create anything, and did in fact create EVERYTHING, from nothing.
This is the miracle of Christmas.
What miracles have you seen in your lifetime. Those occasions where something happened... out of nothing. Everyone has seen them but not everyone acknowledges them.
At this time of year with love, peace and joy, let us also remember the miracle of Christmas. Testify to the miracles as a gift from the heart - to the heart... a remembrance of that MIRACLE which brought a baby to pay the sin of all mankind.
