I stumbled across this passage in my Advent devotional last week on the amazing Incarnation event and wanted to share it with you all.   The Incarnation was a miraculous event when God became man and celestial dance of heaven might have momentarily paused.  Enjoy this thought:

Was there a moment, known only to God, when all the stars held their breath, when the galaxies paused in their dance for a fraction of a second, and the Word, who had called it all into being, went with all his love into the womb of a young girl, and the universe started to breathe again, and the ancient harmonies resumed their song, and the angels clapped their hands of joy?

-Madaleine L’Engle

We don’t know if there was a pause, but there must have been at least a shutter by the evil one and a joyful song from the host of heaven.
