When I think of what Christ sacrificed for my salvation, I usually think of his death. At our annual work Christmas party this week, my administrator did devotions and talked about something I haven't really focused on. Did you ever think about the fact that Christ could have come at any time but chose to come a little over 2000 years ago? It is something I have taken for granted, knowing he was born when he was. But - he came at a time with no electricity, no running water or indoor bathrooms! He started his human life in a lowly manger. He came as a vulnerable, human baby. He was born to parents who were neither wealthy or famous. He lived at a time when most travel was done on foot over dusty trails. There was no air conditioned car for him to ride in. He did not have the luxury of making a run to the store for fresh food, or to a restaurant when he was hungry. There were no refrigerators to keep food cold or ovens to cook in. When you think about the fact that he left heaven for this, it amazes me! Then, after spending 33 years here, he died for me! What an amazing God we have. What an amazing love he showed!
"Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests"
I am a Christian wife, mom to 5 and Grandma to two adorable little girls. I have 2 daughters and a son who were born to me and 2 sons who joined our family by marrying our daughters. I have been married to a wonderful Christian man for over 30 years. I work as a nurse at a long term care center, where I am blessed to get to know many older people and their families.
