In the middle of planning for the Christmas season and keeping up with work, God has been reminding me of the beauty found in the manger: Infinite Light. Unbound goodness. Beauty unending… All in the face of a little baby.

Wonderful Counselor. Mighty God. Everlasting Father. Prince of Peace.

Sometimes life becomes so filled with the ordinary, common tasks that it seems there may not be space for anything else. Yet, present is who He is: God with us. A little baby born in the most unsuspecting of places. There were few eyes to look on Him. Yet, with His entrance, He brought the Hope of the world.
This past weekend I caught myself looking at my growing to-do list, eyes fixed on what little white space was left on the notepad. Deep breaths. This really isn’t all that much. I can manage this list.

Then I add yet another item that needs attention before Christmas.

“…you have shattered the yoke that burdens them, the bar across their shoulders, the rod of their oppressor.” Isaiah 9:4 (NIV)

Where do we look when our days get loaded with tasks and our schedules are filled to the brim? What is the impact of not fixing my eyes on Jesus? How can I point my family to the Prince of Peace if I’m not gazing on Him?
