The "perfect" Christmas

My pastor is doing a series about the idea of having a "perfect" Christmas. Many of the topics have included loosing a job, financial hardships, Losing a loved one....... you know, we are living in the real world and its not going to be "perfect". Its been a very practical and appropriate topic.

It got me to thinking.....
I was looking at a nativity- I have a small collection.
I thought to myself," Did things go as Mary had planed?" She knew the child she was carrying was the Messiah. Do you think she expected to deliver her child in a stable? To lie THE MESSIAH in a manger? Please correct me if I am wrong. But I think that even the first Christmas wasnt "perfect" as we would think of what "perfect" looks like. What made the first Christmas "perfect" was that the Savior was part of it........

Thats all it takes.

I could be raised in faith
but there are still things that havent "clicked"......
I am glad that its new every day.
