Every weekend morning in between Thanksgiving and Christmas is special. I rise in the dark, while everyone else is sleeping (except Maddie, the cat), light twelve Christmas votives, make a strong cup of French Roast coffee, and listen to the quiet.
There is strength in the quiet.
There is joy in the quiet.
There is hope in the quiet.
There is peace in the quiet.
For just a few minutes alone, I can spend time with me and with the one who gifted me with unconditional love born in a stable. He only asks that I return that unconditional love to others.
So, on this Christmas weekend, I pray that in the New Year, you will receive unconditional love, strength, joy, hope, and peace.
He is the Light of the World…shining through the darkness.
Merry Christmas, I am so very thankful for each person who reads this blog, and for those, I now call friends.
