and unto us is born this day.

Go tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go tell it on the mountain 
That Jesus Christ is born! 

Christmas is my favorite day of the entire year. 

My family always winds up in the same house, regardless of where life has taken us. The hour we rise has gotten a little later as we've grown older. Coffee comes first now... even before presents. There isn't an insane dash to rip the paper off as quickly as possible. It takes over an hour. It's less about me and more about all of us doing this together. It is as if we've finally discovered that this holiday isn't about the individual, it's about us being together. I love that. 

Today is really about Jesus. He's here and He came to be with us, in our form. He did so that we wouldn't be afraid of Him, but so that we could relate. Isn't that beautiful and awesome? 

I hope today is wonderful for you. I hope that you have the perfect Christmas that you want and hope for. But if your Christmas isn't perfect - if your family gets in an argument or you're grieving or life is just hard, remember that Jesus came for all of us, in the situation that we are currently in. He didn't expect us to be perfect. If you're Christmas is more black than white, it's still Christmas. Thank God for that! 

Fragile fingers sent to heal us
Tender brow prepared for thorn
Tiny heart whose blood will save us
Unto us is born
Unto us is born

So wrap our injured flesh around You
Breathe our air and walk our sod
Rob our sin and make us holy
Perfect Son of God
Perfect Son of God
Welcome to our world
