“Noel”

Love incarnate, love divine
Star and angels gave the sign
Bow to babe on bended knee
The Savior of humanity
Unto us a Child is born
He shall reign forevermore

Son of God and Son of man
There before the world began
Born to suffer, born to save
Born to raise us from the grave
Christ the everlasting Lord
He shall reign forevermore

Noel – the story of amazing love is my story too. We all have our own stories of amazing love. Mine began in the early days of a cold February, with typical cloudless skies of gray and white puffs leaving a streak every time someone exhaled. I was encircled by the love of two parents and two brothers who preceded me in birth. I was safe, secure, loved and thriving.

But what if that story of love was just touching the surface of possibilities? What if the love we knew could multiply when joined with another love? What if amazing love was magnified one Christmas morn several thousand years ago? What would our stories tell us then?

The amazing story of love is how God sent His son Jesus into the world to show us love in action.

For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6

A babe born in a most unusual place awoke the world to new hope, greater love and a steady heartbeat of grace and new mercies. The world was fully exposed to a new creation that sung of new life wrapped in swaddling clothes. The old is gone and the new has taken its place.

Noel – the story of amazing love is God’s voice shouting louder than the world’s hurts. It is the gift of peace displayed through the extension of kindness and love to others. It is God’s invitation this Christmas to join Him in the story of amazing love.

May we all seek God fully and invite Him to be our greatest gift of love today and everyday.

In grace and peace,

Mary
