He is! Enough!

I write it as if to etch it on my heart.  White chalk pushed across black as if it will somehow light me from within. 

He is!  Enough!

It’s like an altar, that small chalkboard hanging next to the blender in the kitchen.  The words I write on it,  a remembering of where I’ve been and how He has been with me.

He is!

Enough! 

With the house filling with the scent of pine I urge my soul to find its way to Bethlehem and the tiny Baby Jesus lying in His manger.  I urge my soul to look at that tiny baby and see…

He is! Enough!

How the King of kings, Lord of lords, Emmanuel slipped into tiny human form.   The fragility of life pulsing transparent under his skin; the blood that would one day spill…

He is! Enough!

As I clamor to ready the house, spruce up the living room and fill every corner with light I must remember…

He is! Enough!

The gift of His fragility, His humanity…

He is!  Enough! 

I could wrap up all the presents of the world with the brightest and biggest bows and they could not compare to the gift of that tiny Baby.

I could wait an entire lifetime for the most wonderful news and it would not compare to the bright-lit sky and the herald of angels announcing His birth to shepherds

I could light a million candles and none of them would shine as bright as the star leading the wise men to the gift of life that is Jesus.

A tiny baby.

Wrapped in rags.

Lying in the filth and dirt.

His first home a stable,

And yet…

                              He is!

                                                 Enough!
