Fourth Week of Advent: Love
Monday, December 24, 2012
Christmas Eve is a magical time. All that we have dreamed about and hoped for during these last few weeks finally comes together. We may not get that present we wished for but somehow that doesn’t matter now. There is something more for us this night. There is something greater, more enduring, more meaningful, if we can just open our lives to receive it. It is the gift of Christ for each and every one of us.
For some of us that gift brings hope to our lives. For some of us the gift surrounds us with God’s peace. For others, there is a profound joy present this day. And for some we find ourselves embraced in God’s love.
