May your hearth and heart resonate with the warmth of Christ's love and may the oneness and wonder of God captivate you today. The triune God was made known so we could manifest His presence to others.
It was not in easy times or pleasant circumstances that Christ was born. Yet in the middle of the mess Shepherds praised and Mary prayed words of thanksgiving.
What is today for you? Is it reflecting on the relations that were recently lost? Is it celebrating the Son who saved us all? Or is it simply growing in gratitude for God's grace and goodness this past year.
Whatever this day holds for you, know that you are loved by God and may God be as real to you today as He was 2000 years ago.
