Why Christmas?

Holy Trinity.
Three in one.
Father, Son; Holy Spirit.
Glory of Heaven.
The Son leaves the splendor,
the glory.
He comes to earth small;
insignificant.
Babe born of a Virgin's womb.
Born in a stable in a crowded little town.
The hay was soiled.
An incredible star shone above the stable.
Its light filled the land.
Mary struggles, strains
to bring this God baby to the waiting world.
White angels come to shepherds in a field.
The angels fill the sky.
Bright.
Their voices resound.
Echoing loud as they praise God.
Shepherds stand beneath the brimming sky.
Their mouths agape.
Their ragged cloths and beards swaying in chill breeze.
Three kings.
Dressed in deep red, gold; blue.
They watch the sky.
They know of a prophecy.
A prophesy written in ancient scrolls.
Of a king.
A messiah coming, for all mankind.
This star is made of three planets aligning in the Heavens.
This star means a king.
The kings travel.
They travel on camels over miles of desert.
They seek the King.
Mary's breathing regulates.
Her heart is full, overflowing as she looks at the baby in her arms.
Jesus.
He is here.
He is born.
The world need wait no longer.
The King, the Messiah is here.
For all mankind.


This is why we have Christmas.
