Two Days Till Christmas... Can you See what I See?

Probably not. Little of what we truly see, experience, or think can be fully understood by another. Think about poor Mary. Although she was chosen by God and visited by an angel, surely she had her moments of doubt. People didn't understand her, they judged her, they criticized her--even Joseph didn't believe her right away. Of course, being the more rational of the two sexes, I'm not sure what man would.

Yet, she accepted the challenge, even though she really had no idea what she was getting herself into. And she trusted the Lord--faith is required when we can't fully plan, isn't it.

Tricia Goyer is a well-known author of over twenty books and she writes about this very issue on her Dec. 21st posting. I'd encourage you to read it in full by following this link to her blog.

And remember this holiday season, and in the year to come, not everyone can see what you see, but there is One who understands you even more deeply than you understand yourself.
