Silently. So silently the wondrous gift is given. Light came. Light took the initiative and entered in. And this embodied in what looked to be a baby born in poverty. Into darkness came light incarnate. Darkness would not grasp it. We don’t know what date on the calendar this child was born. But we do know the announcement of his birth came at night. How fitting we mark this event near the longest night, at least in the Northern hemisphere. So under the radar came the beginning of the greatest grace. This is such a humble wonder!
For those wrestling, consider that that light came quietly, and right on time, and those who were longing for it saw it.
