Christmas is not about history.

It is about the coming of God into our own lives, again and again.

In the serenity of the neighborhood at nightfall after the snow has fallen and all is quiet

In the love of our families – with us now or passed on to the next life – love so strong and true it can’t be dismissed

In memories that are magical in their power to still bring us joy

In being with us in the pain

In sparing us

In loving us.

All of these moments and more are Christmas.

See you in church.

Barbara
