To begin with…

He existed in the beginning with God. Jn. 1:2

This is the first verse in the Christmas story. There is inexplicable mystery in the fully human/fully God aspect of the baby Jesus born in Bethlehem over two thousand years ago and inexplicable joy for us in the wonder of His coming. C.S. Lewis may have put it best in the last book of his Chronicles of Narnia “In our world too, a stable once had something inside it that was bigger than our whole world.”

Lord, I love celebrating this part of Your beautiful story.
