What has come upon the world for it to have changed so?
It used to be that the birth of a child was a wonderful event
eagerly awaited with much joyful anticipation.
Now, children are seen as a burden,
their coming delayed for as long as possible
and in some cruel cases, even aborted.
We are indeed a people in need of redemption.
The Savior needs to come.
Christmas has always been a joyful season,
preceded by the hopeful waiting of Advent.
It reminds us dramatically that God walks among men.
It is a celebration of life,
the power of one life,
no matter how simple or humble,
to change everything and everyone.
