"It is good to be children sometimes, and never better than at
Christmas when its mighty Founder was a child Himself. ~ Charles Dickens
my extent of keeping christ as the center this season, thus far, was my attempts of throwing pillows at the cats when they knocked down the nativity set...again.
the angel's hand is officially missing.
I was starting to feel the hallow nature of my days,
but i'm resolving to shift back into purpose; to not let what matters to me pass by.
so here's to keeping the prayer candle lit.
to visiting the festival of lights at the grotto, to reflect on mary and joseph and their beautiful baby boy.
for assembling the advent wreath- even if it's a few weeks late.
and to finding the nativity angel's hand.....and super glue.
I'm thankful for a god filled with humor and understanding.
the holidays mean something different to everyone;
keep your reasons close and center these long winter days,
and then with purpose we will gather around the tree and be merry like children.
