It’s just another day, until it’s not.
“And there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch by night. And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them.” (Luke 2:8-9)
You might be just going about your business, doing your daily routine. Then, angels, light, and good news. And everything changes.
Sometimes, the thing you’ve been waiting for, hoping for, wondering if…just appears in the quiet of night. You can’t predict exactly when or how. If it’s a God-thing, you can count on it, bank on it, believe it; but even still, it will take you by surprise. Jesus and his angels did—and they still do.
Christmas time is a reminder that Light is still beating back the darkness. But the miraculous shows up in the mundane. “Glory” appears in the everyday moments of our story and often when we least expect it.
