Monday's Meditation

Immanuel...God with us
God with us as a homeless baby wrapped in rags and put down for the night in a cows' trough.
God with us as a boy playing in the shadows of Egypt's pyramids with the neighbor kids along the banks of the Nile.
God with us as a man amongst friends celebrating the marriage of lovers by bringing, of all things, barrels of wine!
God with us weeping at the tomb of a dead friend, comforting loved ones in their time of grief.
God with us in so many ways and in so many ways to come. God with us to show us how to live, to perfect our imperfections, to lead us in our day to day lives and on into eternity. God with us... Immanuel.
