The Wonder of Christmas

wonder of Christmas

As our church has been celebrating Advent, several weeks ago a congregant spoke on the wonder of the season.

As she began to sing

I wonder as I wander out under the sky
How Jesus the Saviour did come for to die
For poor on’ry people like you and like I;
I wonder as I wander out under the sky

When Mary birthed Jesus ’twas in a cow’s stall
With wise men and farmers and shepherds and all
But high from God’s heaven, a star’s light did fall
And the promise of ages it then did recall.

If Jesus had wanted for any wee thing
A star in the sky or a bird on the wing
Or all of God’s Angels in heaven to sing
He surely could have it, ’cause he was the King

I wonder as I wander out under the sky
How Jesus the Saviour did come for to die
For poor on’ry people like you and like I;
I wonder as I wander out under the sky

Born and raised in a Christian family I have always known the true meaning of Christmas is Christ’s birth but in the familiarity of it I believe I have forgotten the wonder.

If I quiet my heart to think of that night in Bethlehem, what was it like for those who saw a star shinning so brightly in the sky? Or to think of angels singing on a dark night? Would it rock my world if I had seen those sights? I’m sure that it would have!

This year I have begun to look for ways my family can more richly celebrate the wonder of Christmas….Christ’s birth, a gift to the world! Marvel at God’s goodness to us.

Some Ideas I have

Whatever your traditions this advent season might we all celebrate Jesus, wondering at the grace of God that He would send His Son for us.
