Tidings of Great Joy

Luke 2:10-11-Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” 

“Good tidings of great joy”… What a beautiful phrase. And its a phrase with a promise. A promise that something is about to happen that will change everything. Suffering and pain will be washed away and replaced with great joy. In spite of the pain, loss, grief, abuse, and chaos the world throws at us, the day is coming where we will experience this Great Joy that was released into the universe when Christ was born. Sure, sometimes the waiting is agonizing, but in the end, we will say it was worth it. He is worth it.

Merry Christmas, dear reader.
