“It’s like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo, — the ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were…But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass.” J.R.R. Tolkien, The Two Towers (Sam)

Blessings of Christmas to you if you celebrate, and blessings of peace, either way, if you don’t.  This night always felt so magical to me, as a child.  I’ve since learned that Jesus was probably born in the Spring, but I still like to sing the song I learned about his birth every Christmas Eve.

Hush my heart, behold the wonder/ Lying there in yonder stall./ Son of God, the great Creator,/ He before whom angels fall, the Lord of all./ Once he hung the stars in Heaven,/ Sent the planets on their way,/ Now he stoops to this poor manger/ Sleeps a babe on the stable hay./ Who could tell the depths of mercy?/ Who could know a love so true?/ Who the boundless grace could measure/ That his coming brings to view?/ Hush my heart and bow in worship/ At his lowly cradle there,/ Knowing that he came to save us/ Came to earth our sins to bear.”  (A Christmas solo I sang when I was 19 for a church concert. I’m sorry I don’t know the name, but if you do, I’d love to know.)

Wherever you are today, may you find shelter, warmth and peace, and may you know, always, how much you are loved.  ∞♥∞

Painting, “Dark Phoenix” by Marvel, Inc.

#18* in the “Divine Feminine” series.  In October and November we’ll be featuring quotes about, for and by women.  Inspired by the Awakin.org call with Elle Lunaauthor The Crossroads of Should and Must. See also Aphrodite Emerges on Medium.com and “#the100dayproject” on Instagram. Neither an original nor a contributed painting, this quote and image are among my favorites.  This is also truly great advice, especially for women and men who are naturally gifted, or deeply in touch, with the divine feminine – both History’s greatest healers.

*This was also #7.  Really sorry about the repeat!  We’ve updated Gems 2.54 with a different photo since this was posted as a “last day” message on our Facebook #Light-FilledGems page  We’re moving to a new page on Facebook:  @Under1000skies

We welcome submissions of poetry, prose, art and/or photos.  See our About page for more information.
