May God, who loved and still loves without condition, bless those most in need of love.
May the spirit of Christ get carried forward by each of us in quiet, small ways. May each of us, in small, simple ways, be a source of love and peace for those around us. Yes, us--the ones who are frail and full of flaws.
May the beauty of the incarnation--the birth of Emmanuel, God with us--stay with us long after the trappings of the season are put away.
Merry Christmas to anyone ("Anyone out there??") who stumbles across this blog!
