Advent 12

A quick thought today:

Zora, through the miracle of Hulu, enjoyed her first ever viewing of the Charlie Brown Christmas Special.

I never noticed before: when Charlie Brown is about to give up on his Christmas tree, he hears Linus reciting the Luke 2 Christmas story again. And this causes him to give the tree another chance. It might be a scraggly, scrappy little tree. The unexpected tree.

But baby Jesus was a scraggly, scrappy, unexpected little Messiah.
