We wait to remember a long ago birth.
Joy joins Peace and Hope as a prayer or simply to enhance aspects of Christmas that enrich us as human beings and for family times. Joy as folks choose to see it is often disguised as ‘happiness’ and sadly never can be manufactured. This Joy, as we journey through Advent is the promise that …..all the little lights by themselves or even in a group are all temporary……… easily extinguishable!
All these lights, like all frail humanity, need THE LIGHT
to provide the eternity ignition.
That’s what they waited for, for generations. That’s what we wait for on our journey to Christmas. It’s coming! It’s coming! The remembrance of the coming of THE LIGHT that can never be extinguished!
A Child was born long ago. (Look for the shadow of the Cross over the simple stable)………That’s the fullness of the Christmas story. That’s the story of DIVINE LOVE.
Enjoy your Christmas preparations……Keep them simple. Nurture with messages of Hope, Peace and Joy. Gifts, gifts, gifts all pandering to commercialism and self seeking BUT!………..But!………The real GIFT OF CHRISTMAS is still to come. It’s FREE…but must be fully opened!
Enjoy Life! Enjoy the journey!
Blessings and Grace!
