it sounds almost too incredible to say yet even more unbelievable to think.

God sneaked into the world.

there was a lack of advertising campaign and little promotional build up. with all eyes focused on Caesar’s census, few heads turned to look at the Almighty’s arriving. while the world looked one way, God crept onto earth.

bethlehem had no room. herod had no clue.

it happened in the company of unreputable farmers, horoscope readers, a pregnant virgin and a bewildered bloke. the backdrop was a dirty feeding trough within a smelly shed.

into time stepped the Timeless One. earth’s newest creation was the Uncreated One. the world’s youngest human was the Ageless One. the All Powerful One had yet to learn to walk and talk.

few noticed. no one seemed to care. and all this took place while earth slept.

maybe God is wanting to wake us from our 21st century slumber to see the wonder of this miraculous, calendar changing event all over again.

no more sleeping. God has arrived.
