Last night at my small group meeting, I saw the essence of "A Ragamuffin Christmas" demonstrated in bold relief.
Our hostess' grandson was visiting as we all were arriving for our 6:30 PM meeting. He is only a few months old and just a wonderful and precious little fellow.
Each adult who entered his presence found themselves smiling, laughing, cooing, and remarking how beautiful he is. We all fought the urge to ask to hold him or touch him or just try to coax a smile out of him.
That's what babies do...and that's what happened when God was a baby.
Jesus coaxed all those same reactions out of everyone who came in contact with him.
...and every Christmas, He does it again and again.
Peace to you,
