Merry Christmas! Wishing that you … yes, you … feel and experience deep inside all the beauty and promise of this day. And that the same glory that was “’round about the shepherds,” will be shimmering around you today, and that you will hear the same voice of God and the angels that says, “Don’t be afraid. I come with news of great joy!”
Remember that miracles can come from the most unlikely places … like a stable or a divorce. And that transformation usually begins with difficulty. And that a glorious new life can become reality by following a star to the manger anew every morning. Let’s all strive to really get what “God come to earth” means in the here and now. Forget your sadness today. Feel God’s arms around you and believe that his Spirit will give you absolutely everything you need for a life beyond all imagining, beginning with and because of this Christmas Day.
My love and prayers for all of you today.
