> The Christmas lights started to shine this weekend in our home; we bought our tree and brought it home with joy, beautiful music filled our place as we turned on the first Christmas lights. The story is ready to be unfold, to be read again, to be lived every day. Isn’t wonderful how we stop to celebrate the Incarnation of our Lord? Isn’t is wonderful to turn on the first Christmas lights only to be reminded that Light overcame darkness? Isn’t is wonderful to stop and meditate on the greatest miracles of all: God made man?
For this I am grateful today:
