30 Days of Thanksgiving: Day 28

I am thankful for the incarnation.

Now that Thanksgiving has passed, it is time to turn our attention to the Christmas season. I am thankful for Advent, the time of waiting and preparation. I am thankful for the spirit of giving, for Season’s Greetings, for Christmas and Holiday t.v. specials, and for hot cocoa, apple cider, and peppermint everything. I am thankful that no matter how many protest putting up community nativity scenes or attempt to ban the mention of anything Christian there is really no escaping it. I love the music, the colors, the lights, the trees, the cartoons, the cards, the cookies, the candies and the general mood and feeling of this time of year.

I am thankful for the incarnate deity of Jesus Christ. I am thankful that God is in the manger. I am thankful for the gift that far exceeds the value of every other ever given or received. I am thankful for Immanuel, God with us.
