No bells or neon lights. No billboards or glossy ads. No multi-million-dollar Super Bowl commercials announcing the news.
He could have, you know. He could have slid in on a red carpet, with spotlights and strobe-lights and flash-bulb lights flashing. He could have gone viral on YouTube. He could have secured a spot on the Nightly News and hashtagged the universe.
But no, Love dropped from the sky quietly, down through Heaven’s cellar door, falling,
like a soft, slow winter snow.
You had to be paying attention to know He’d come. You had to be paying attention.
And this is me, trying to pay attention … to really. pay. attention.
(Quietly sharing a song with you today that, quite simply, gives me God-Bumps at Christmas … and all year ’round. I made this video to the song “Winter Snow” last year. All of the scenes photographed are from our home, our yard, our country church…)
(If you’re having trouble seeing the video, you may also click here to watch the video directly from YouTube.)
Have you come by to participate in this Wednesday’s God-Bumps & God-Incidences? I’m so glad you’re here.
1 — Write your story. Or post a picture and a verse … or a favorite song, as I’ve done here today.
2 — Add a community button (found here) to your post.
3 — Come back here to link the direct URL from your post on this page (add it to the linky below.)
The “rules” for our community are pretty loose. You are invited to share any life moment — big or small — in which you sense God at work. Together, we are opening our soul-eyes to see the God-incidences unfolding, and the ”God-bumps” growing.
Grace and peace to you, as you sense Jesus in your midst, my friend … Here we are together, paying attention to a Love that drifts quietly, like a winter snow.
