Simeon is one of my favorite characters in the Biblical account of the birth and early life of Christ. He was given an amazing promise—that he would see God's Messiah before he died. I love to imagine what his life was like and how it would be to faithfully wait for Jesus’ birth despite ridiculous odds against the promise.
I've written a short Christmas story that does just that; it imagines Simeon's wait and the fulfillment of the promise made to him by the Holy Spirit. It's historical fiction—faithful to the Biblical text, but with some liberties taken to flesh out the story. (You can read about Simeon in Luke 2:25-35.)

Please enjoy this story with your family as a unique encouragement to hold on to God’s promises, even when everything seems to tell us to give up our hope.
