Miracle on 34th Street is one of my favorite Christmas movies. The adaptation made in 1994 is particularly good. In the movie there is a scene where a young deaf girl comes to see Santa Clause. The girls mother explains that she can not hear. She just wanted to see him.
Then the unexpected happens. Santa comes into her world. He enters into her world and reminds her that she is not alone. This simple act is more than just kindness. It truly is grace personified. I love this scene because not only is the little girl blessed, but so is her mother, who just wanted to make her daughters life a little bit happier. A little bit more joyful.
This is what Christmas is all about. It is the reminder that God has entered into our frailty and made us feel less alone.
Remember this Christmas that you are not alone in the world. God has come down and has become like you and me so that we may know joy. Now and forever.[vodpod id=Video.15861959&w=600&h=400&fv=file%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fspencerbott.com%252Fvideo_file%252F14255499341%252Ftumblr_lw8ic3lRsV1r32xz9%26amp%3Borientation%3Dlandscape%26amp%3Bposter%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fmedia.tumblr.com%252Ftumblr_lw8ic3lRsV1r32xz9_r1_frame1.jpg%2Chttp%253A%252F%252Fmedia.tumblr.com%252Ftumblr_lw8ic3lRsV1r32xz9_r1_frame2.jpg%2Chttp%253A%252F%252Fmedia.tumblr.com%252Ftumblr_lw8ic3lRsV1r32xz9_r1_frame3.jpg%2Chttp%253A%252F%252Fmedia.tumblr.com%252Ftumblr_lw8ic3lRsV1r32xz9_r1_frame4.jpg%2Chttp%253A%252F%252Fmedia.tumblr.com%252Ftumblr_lw8ic3lRsV1r32xz9_r1_frame5.jpg]
