This would never happen in DFW, but it did happen and I think it’s a pretty great reminder to us this Christmas.
A friend of mine is a pastor in a small town in southeast Michigan and a couple of Christmas’s ago, they received almost a foot of snow. As he was driving through the town square he looked over to the nativity scene that was set up and he noticed something: because they got so much snow, the baby Jesus was totally covered up. So he got out of his car and brushed off the snow so Jesus could be seen.
Something about that story is symbolic to me. Don’t get me wrong, I love the Christmas season. The fun songs, the Christmas cookies, the gifts. But at the heart of Christmas is Jesus and I believe this is a lesson that we can take with us into the coming days in our own lives: uncover Jesus in every situation. If you ever find a moment that Jesus obscured, make room for him.
