Manger Throne

Reflections on the real reason we celebrate...

What thoughts were running through their minds that night? Did Joseph worry about being the earthly father of the Son of God? Just how afraid were those shepherds? Did Mary know that when she kissed her son, she had kissed the face of God? Did that baby know that He was born to be my Savior? I know that He did. Did He know that He would change this world forever? You bet. He left his home in Heaven to dwell among men. To feel pain. He was born to die. And tonight, as I reflect on this holiday season, I remember "that dirty manger is my heart too; I'll make it a royal throne for You."
