Christmas Musings......


Well dear blogging friends, this will be my last post before Christmas.  I wanted to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year, filled with peace, love, health and happiness.

As I sit here watching the snow lightly fall, memories flow of Christmases past...with those loved ones who are no longer with us and the new little babes born into our circle of family love.  I have been lucky enough to experience the birth of a child at Christmas time, and I felt akin to our Lord's mother, Mary as she held her newborn son, Jesus, and looked into His tiny eyes to see the Light of the World.

The lights are bright and colorful at Christmas because Jesus is the light of the world. 

We decorate because He created the world in all it's splendor.

We give presents because He Himself is the greatest present and presence in the history of the world. He is our God and our all.

And why did God make Himself so available? There is no other motivation possible but LOVE. "God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son." Not even God could have given us any more and Jesus is the Gift that keeps on giving forever and everywhere.

Take a look at a nativity scene....see how the Baby Jesus has his arms outstretched and reaching upward?  Ask Him, the little babe, in the crib how much He loves you, and His little arms respond with the most expansive gesture. Thirty three years later, those same arms now fully grown, pinned back to the wood of the Cross, give the same answer: "Greater love than this no one has than to lay down one's life for another." 

May our Lord bless you and your family this holiday season and forever more.
