Isaiah 9:6 NIV
[6] For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

In the most unlikely of places, a stable at the back of a pub being used as a desperate overflow bedroom, that child is born. That child promised hundreds of years ago surely would be born in a palace or the latest maternity hospital? But no, God has another way! Maybe as we look on to Christmas we may find God in some unexpected places and may we find peace as he comes to us!

How marvellous! How wonderful!
And my song shall ever be:
How marvellous! How wonderful!
Is my Saviour’s love for me!
