Can you remember a time when you were a child and you wanted something so much that it seemed that special something would never come?—And then when it finally did come, it wasn’t what you had expected at all, but something far better? That’s what our heavenly Father did with Christmas.

Since the beginning of time, people had longed for a special something to make their lives truly happy and complete. Who would have ever thought that all of that would come in the form of a tiny baby born in a barn in some faraway land? But that’s exactly what happened.

God looked at every human heart He had created and every heart to come, and He knew just what we needed. So He took a part of His own heart and fashioned the perfect answer. Then He sent the answer into the world. And He called the answer Jesus.
