This was my wife’s parents home in a small town in Southwest Missouri. I took this photo on a Christmas morning before anyone else woke up. I had to go out the back door and walk around another building to keep from putting footprints in the snow. Her parents have passed, the house has been sold and only the memories of past Christmas celebrations remain. It has been quite a few years since we last had a white Christmas in this area and I would like to see my home covered in snow this year.

Isaiah 9:6-7 tell us much about our Savior seven hundred years before His birth. “For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given;” These verses also tell us that the government will be upon His shoulders and that His government will never end. God was not talking about physically overthrowing the Roman government and setting up a new center of power in Jerusalem: God was talking about eternity! We are reminded in Isaiah 55:8-10 that God does not think like us and we are incapable of thinking like Him, “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts”. That child born in a manger in Bethlehem is going to govern eternity.
