Christmas whispers of wistful longings and warm family celebrations—the Savior has come. But the story isn’t finished. "Peace on earth and goodwill toward men" will only be a wish and a vision until the Prince of Peace finally rules our world. The lights, the singing, the gift giving, and the joy foreshadow an eternal morning together in His presence. Through her artwork, her creative retelling of the Nativity, and her tender reflections of the Christmas season, Joni Eareckson Tada invites the reader to consider anew the Son of God, who is the wellspring of every joy, the fulfillment of every longing.
Take time this Christmas season to step outside the clamor and excitement. Visit the stable and ask God to speak to you in the quiet and serenity and stillness... Never stop believing that He will fulfill His promise to live among us in unveiled majesty and splendor.
