Seek Him

Christmas tells a different story.
It tells us that a deeper moral change comes from encountering the
Presence who loves us, instead of threatening us;
Who comes to find us instead of shaming us;
who comes to change the human heart by offering it compassion and forgiveness
instead of forcing and humiliating us.
Christmas is ‘God with us’ rather than the ‘state over us.’

Bishop Gavin Ashenden

“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom His favor rests!”
Luke 2:14

“God has done everything; he has done the impossible: he was made flesh.
His all-powerful love has accomplished something which surpasses all human
the Infinite has become a child,
has entered the human family.
And yet, this same God cannot enter my heart unless I open the door to him.”

Pope Benedict XVI

A very Merry Christmas to all of my family, friends and dear blogging family,
each and everyone…be they near or far…

    Belated Christmas wishes although liturgically the Christmas season has just begun – so I’m not really late! I hope your celebration of the birth of our Lord was very blessed, especially considering that you will soon be a grandma! I hope that Brenton was feeling much better as well. Blessings for you and your family!

    • I would have emailed but we had brenton, Abby and the dog since Saturday morning and Brenton ended up getting strep— they departed yesterday morning and Gregory is off today— first day off in over two weeks other than Christmas-so crazy yes!
      How about you? Did your family come home or did you travel?
      And you’re right— we’re just getting this season started 😇

  8. Praise the Lord, He opened my heart. I was dead and unable to hear or open anything.
    Blessings for a new year of His presence and power.
