A sense of wonder at Christmas time

My mother and sister have a favourite song which has a lyric 'I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean'. I was reminded of that lyric today when thinking
about why we celebrate Christmas. That God came to earth as a human baby is incredible and beyond our understanding, however we've heard the story so many times it somehow becomes normal and we don't have the wonder that we maybe once had. So here is to Christmas blowing our minds again with the reality that God came to earth human form.
