#10 “Shoulders” – 25 Days of Christmas


For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given…
(Isaiah 9: 6)

Did you look at the sonogram of your baby in utero?
Boy or Girl?
Did you want to know ahead of time?

What did you picture?
His eyes?
Her nose?

His smile?
Her laugh?
Healthy, hearty ten fingers, ten toes?

How about the shoulders?
Do you think of the baby’s shoulders?
How wide will they be?
Did you even envision the shoulders?

Neither did I…
But God did…

This Jesus to be born?
“…and the government shall be upon his shoulder…” (Isaiah 9: 6)

Laugh often and Fear not!
