joy to the world.

and maybe that's what it was like in the stable on the eve of that first christmas.
He came softly, quietly, and humbly
into the world.
to bring his sufficient grace and his slivers of peace 
to people that were broken and hurting
to people that needed something more to keep from falling apart.
to people that would call out His name,
people that would be patient and willing to listen for His subtle response.

they had to be working to see the sign of His come.
they had to seek Him, they had to come unto Him
to feel of His sweet glory and comforting affection.

the Lord is come,
sing in exultation, 
born is the king
Jesus Lord, at thy birth.

maybe that's what christmas has really meant all along.
