What is your wish this holiday season? Do you look to open bright packages on Christmas morning? Perhaps you hope for a visit from family you haven’t seen in some time. Maybe your greatest wish is overshadowed by commercialism and you want to get back to the heart of Christmas.
I have been blessed this season by reading to my children a narrative account of the Christmas events that I published last year. It was a blessing to write and is a blessing to reread them each day beginning December 1st, sharing the story with my boys.
If you’re interested in reading this Biblical narrative that follows Mary, Joseph, and Jesus through what we know as the first Christmas, I hope you enjoy.
Before you begin, consider listening to one of my new favorite Christmas songs, “Leaving Heaven” by Matthew West. Consider it a prologue for this epic story, and Merry Christmas!
