the Incarnation

We have "sentimentalized" the birth of Jesus of Nazareth. When we think of the birth we see wise men and shepherds and a star. But these are only minor characters in an excedingly great drama...the Incarnation. The birth of the Christ is so much more than a "birthday" to be observed once a year. Our focus must become the Incarnation, which we celebrate every minute of our lives. We must realize that the cry we hear drifting from the stable is the voice of the One who spoke the universe into being (John 1:3; 1 Corinthians 8:6; Colossians 1:16, Hebrews 1:2). Oh the staggering realization that the little one, wrapped in rags, looking up at us from the trough is in reality everything His special name reveals..."God with us"!

Unconscious Mutterings (week 149)

After looking at week 148's word list, I found one of the words to be slightly offensive, and definitely a word I would not want to publish on this blog (wouldn't want my site listed to the types of people who might 'blog search the term). So I skipped a week. Here are the words for 12/11/05.
I say...and you think...
  1. Stalker::creepy
  2. Outrageous::prices
  3. Carrying::a full load
  4. Spirited::debate
  5. Oh!::more snow?
  6. Grid::lock
  7. Country::rural
  8. Karen::Karen B (a friend when I was young-er)
  9. Candles::glow
  10. Relationship::just how are we related? (from doing family histories!!)
