"Christmas cannot be bought. Christmas cannot be created. Christmas cannot be made by hand. Christmas can only be
found...in the creche, in the cradling trough, in the mire and stench in the unexpected and unlikely and only in the person of Christ.
The mystery so large becomes the babe so small — and infinite God becomes infant.
Christ, the babe,
comes in Christmas as Christ the Savior comes on the cross —
Seeking only our embrace."~ Ann Voskamp
