The Night that changed the World

Over two thousand years ago, the fate of the world changed one night. The change was not brought down with thunder or lightning or any of the dramatic special effects that we see in movies these days. There were only the cries of a full-term pregnant woman and the racing heart-beat of her husband, a carpenter, who probably didn't have any experience delivering a child before. In fact they were travelling when it was time for the baby to come. I can't imagine the pain, the fear, the anxiety they would have gone through.

The Baby was born that very night and He was laid in a manger! This was the Baby who was to change the course of the world. His birth was so ordinary - no pomp and no spectacular celebrations, in fact not even a cradle or a bed to lay Him in. God chose to bring His one and only Son into this world as a ordinary human being.

As we celebrate Christmas this year, just take a moment to recall Jesus' actual birth.

Here are a few snapshots of Christmas from my home.










The Christmas Star at our home - Reminiscent of the bright star that marked Jesus birth.





Wish all of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
