The world is a place filled with magic! It is for us to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary, find peace in tremendous turmoil and be a gift of joy whenever possible.
Our family has once again suffered loss and my daughter has again, lost a friend…both tragic situations…and ones that will impact us, our thinking and also our actions. These experiences, as well as observing the tremendous loss to two other families right before Christmas, somehow changed the way we viewed things as family.
Family and friends hugged and hugged that much closer…kissed…shared time…just that much closer; miraculous, wondrous, beautiful! Christmas means having my children safe and having them happy. Christmas is a moment that perches on top of a giant bundle of moments.
A tiny baby came into the world in the most humble of situations and he transformed the thinking of so many! He intended only that we love one another, to love ourselves similarly and to love God with all of our heart, soul, strength and mind.
May you and your families be richly blessed and may you draw nearer to the ‘heart of matters’.
