I enjoy the LDS sight Today there was a beautiful Christmas article entitled "Our Place in the Christmas Story" by Wallace Goddard He quoted the following from a book by Dennis Rasmussen called "The Lord's Question" I think it is the nicest thing I have read in a long time about Christmas.

A thousand years before a thousand years ago a holy night descended on the world.

In the darkness of Bethlehem the omnipotent God became an impotent Baby.

The hands that made the world and hung the stars in the sky were now just large enough to grasp a mother’s finger ...

What would be said of a God who came not in glory but in secret,

a King who came not to command but to obey ...

He revealed that man’s greatness is not to be found in dominion over the will of another but in submission to the will of God ...

He began his life in a stable, that no one should ever feel too lowly to approach him ...

And now that I have come, what gift shall I leave before him?

I know, because he has told me, what will gladden his heart:

"Love one another; as I have loved you … By this shall men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another."

As I bring the gift of love, I shall see the smile of my Lord Jesus Christ.

I'm a little late getting to your blog. But I loved this - especially a King who came not to command but to obey. Oh if only the whole world would desire to obey - what peace we would have on this earth.
