Advent Calendar Door #24 – Jesus is…coming

I love the honesty of this depiction of Jesus’ birth. I imagine labour covers pretty much the full range of human emotions, and here is God right in the middle of all of that.

This period of Advent has been a period of waiting. Mary and Joseph waited with no idea of what life had in store for them, and perhaps we also wait with a sense of uncertainty, but because of Christ we can peek ahead and see the hope that awaits.

And so because Jesus is coming but he is also already here, I couldn’t resist showing you the end of the story. Or rather the end of this little bit of the story, because this is really only just the beginning…
