It is time again to believe
that Jesus is being born
where people need him most.
At Jesus’ birth-
there was no inner circle
of people waiting
to hear the news
of a savior born in a manger.
There were no crowds gathered in the fields,
huddled from the cold,
all looking up to watch where the Heavenly star
decided to stop, pointing them to the Holy Infant.
A meager few shepherds
were all who saw… and followed.
Christmas is Jesus being born among
those who trust and believe that
no amount of darkness can overcome the light
of a single candle.
The true light
of belief cannot
“The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world.” John 1:9
