The Night When Love was Born

Christ the babe comes in Christmas as Christ the Savior comes on the cross – seeking only our embrace. The mystery so large becomes the babe so small and infinite God becomes infant.

And if there is no cross in my Christmas, then my Christmas has lost the Christ – What is the manger if not for the Messiah, the One who saves us with the scars?

Christmas isn’t a product to wrap, but a person to unwrap.

Christmas cannot be bought.

Christmas cannot be created.

Christmas cannot be made by hand.

Christmas can only be found in the crèche, in the cradling trough, in the mire and the stench and the unexpected and unlikely and only, only in the person of Christ.

Devotional Christmas words by Ann Voskamp

About Andrea

I am from Whitby, Ontario. I have lived in Romania for 9 years as a missionary but I am currently in Canada on a sabbatical break at this time. I have also lived in South Korea for a year and I have also been to Russia, Uganda, Albania and the Czech Republic on short-term mission trips. In 2012, God also gave me an amazing opportunity to go to Mozambique for the Harvest Mission School with Iris Ministries as well. I love children, reaching out to people who are in need and vulnerable, I have a passion to fight against the injustice issue of human trafficking and to simply share the love of Jesus wherever I go. I also love cats too and I have a cat of my own named Minnie!
