12/25/12 The Work of Christmas…

From last night’s Eve service, a quote from Howard Thurman:

When the song of the angels is stilled

When the star in the sky is gone

When the kings and princes are home

When the shepherds are back with their flock

The work of Christmas begins:

  • to find the lost
  • to heal the broken
  • to feed the hungry
  • to release the prisoner
  • to rebuild the nations
  • to bring peace among people
  • to make music in the heart.

This my first holiday season without L has been an eye-opening experience filled with unexpected surprises and “gifts” in the form of calls and cards from so many, a visit from two people I have had contact with for years but am just beginning to truly know (and appreciate), family, friends, tears and laughter. It has indeed been a joyous season–a time for reflection on the wonderful life I have been given and always always the realization that L continues to be with me in spirit if not in body and for that I am so very thankful. Blessings to you and yours! Anna
