"Everything was ready.
The moment God had been waiting for was here at last!
God was coming to help his people, just as he promised in the beginning.
But how would he come?
What would he be like?
What would he do?
Mountains would have bowed down.
Seas would have roared.
Trees would have clapped their hands.
But the earth held its breath.
As silent as snow falling, he came in.
And when no one was looking,
in the darkness, he came..."
