"the nicest and the sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple pleasure, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

this Christmas...

God descends to re-ascend. He comes down; down from the heights of absolute being into time and space, down into humanity… down to the very roots and sea-bed of the Nature He has created. But He goes down to come up again and bring the ruined world up with Him. One has the picture of a strong man stooping lower and lower to get himself underneath some great complicated burden. He must stoop in order to lift, he must almost disappear under the load before he incredibly straightens his back and marches off with the whole mass swaying on his shoulders.  c.s.lewis

As we pause to celebrate the birth of Jesus, let us lift up our eyes and ponder anew the miracle of Christmas.   May you be blessed with all the joyous gifts your heart can hold and may you hold those you love near to you and remember those who can't be with us, those who need us to reach out to them, and shine your heart light.  Merry Christmas.
