…and just as quickly as the Christmas season swooped in, all glittery and smelling of cinnamon sticks and peppermint, we reach this day: Christmas Eve.
A season of waiting and hoping, of anticipation, culminates in these next few hours. In these next few moments as we catch up with family and friends. As we mourn those we lost this year and learn to celebrate the holidays with empty places at our tables and in our hearts.
As we make new traditions with tiny new family members…
A season of waiting and hoping, of anticipation, culminates now, on Christmas Eve… as it did two thousand years ago in a manger under the stars. Expectations, answered. Hope, secured.
