In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. John 1:1-5, NIV
they caught their breath. Then quietly, they tiptoed inside. They knelt on the dirt floor. They had heard about this Promised Child and now he was here. They had heard about this Maker of the Stars. A baby sleeping in his mother’s arms. This baby would be like that bright star shining in the sky that night. A Light to light up the whole world. Chasing away darkness. Helping people to see.
And the darker the night got,
the brighter the star would shine.
– p.190, The Jesus Story Book Bible, Sally Lloyd-Jones
On the day after Christmas, as the whole world is still encased in cold hard stoned ice, my heart is melting in His Light which chases away darkness, helping my family to see, where we are is not of eternal, what we face is not of permanence! He is of eternal, He is of permanence. He is the Glory in the Highest!!
