The Wonder of Christmas

Has anyone else stopped and thought about how truly wonderful the Nativity of Our Lord really is?
Besides a virgin giving birth, Man and God are united in the Incarnation. His taking on flesh and becoming God AND man unites Heaven and Earth. Mary is like Jacob's ladder connecting the two. In the Mass/Divine Liturgy we worship in the same way as the angels as is described in Isaiah, Matthew, Luke, and Revelation. There also Heaven and Earth are united in that place.
Think about it.The Incarnation continues even today in the Eucharist. God makes Himself physically present and available to us, albeit in the guise of bread and wine.

May God bless all who read my ramblings,
