Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.Matthew 1:23
This verse takes my breath away every time I hear or read it. As though I didn’t know what was coming, those last three words leave me a bit stunned.
God with us.
God, the king and creator of the universe with us.
God lowered Himself to come to earth just to be with us.
God with undeserving sinners like us.
I’ve read and heard about it, prayed and even written about it. And yet, I can’t seem to wrap my brain around it.
God With Us
In today’s featured post, Jeanne Tanenaka asks, Have you ever stopped—really stopped—to consider these three little words?
Emmanual. God with us. Three little words that are just as relevant in 2020 as the day the angel Gabriel made the divine name reveal.

Are You Up For Some Family Fun This Holiday Season?
Christmas is right around the corner. If you’re looking for something to do with your family over the holiday, consider teaching them how to make their own t-shirt or decorate a coffee mug. Everyone will walk away with keepsakes and memories, which will make this holiday a hit.
