God gave his only begotten Son to a teenage girl, newly engaged.
God gave this young lass the gift of faith to wholeheartedly trust in His will.
God gave the world a wee baby boy, born in a stable amongst lowly animals.
God gave a sign to welcome the birth. A star lighting up the dark of night. A beacon beckoning those tending the fields. A lamp of hope to magi bearing gifts to celebrate the newborn King.
And on that night, God’s love came down to Earth. A gift greater than any found under a Christmas tree. A love so profound it never runs out, it never gives up and it never fails.
