    But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, (Galatians 4:4 ESV)
    Is time alive? That may sound like a strange question.  How do you suppose our Lord views this creation of His?  Times change, but does time change?  It did become full.
    In our arrogance we may actually believe that we understand our creator’s perceptions.  Jesus seemed to have no problem claiming that rocks could shout out and cheer if the people failed to do so as he entered Jerusalem. (Luke 19:40) Have you ever heard a hoarse rock? Or possibly a soprano boulder? Maybe a crooning stone?  It's clear that our creator views His creation very differently than we do.
    Time became full, stuffed, no-room-at-the-inn type full! Something had to give.  This statement of the Apostle Paul of course, means that time was ripe!  Ripe for what? Well  it was a perfect time for sending a Saviour!
    So God, who loves His creation beyond anything we could ever imagine, became trapped in time to save us for all time!  Isn't it about time that you paid attention to what your creator took time to do for you? Whew!
    Take time to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas!
