Christmas often invites us to use our imaginations - and we like to dream big! When it came to the first Christmas, Mary and Joseph probably had some big hopes and dreams for it too. But when Mary went into labor away from home and in less than ideal accommodations, she probably felt like she was in a nightmare. The good news is that it's into that very nightmare that Jesus comes and He comes into whatever nightmare we find ourselves in to bring God's love to bear.
