We were ambling along the path, walking the dogs, and …there it was: in an obscure dark corner of an old log hut, on the top of a hill on our small island — a scene of the Nativity. So completely unexpected! and such a rich reminder of the gift of God that we celebrate at Christmas time. Unimagined Grace, in the most unexpected place and unfathomable manner. In the words of an old hymn:
Lo, within a manger lies He who built the starry skies…
May you be met by the unimaginable and unexpected Grace of God this Christmas Time. And always.
‘The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. ( John 1:14)
