“Frost grows on the window glass, forming whorl patterns of lovely translucent geometry.
Breathe on the glass, and you give frost more ammunition.
Now it can build castles and cities and whole ice continents with your breath’s vapor.
In a few blinks you can almost see the winter fairies moving in . . .
But first, you hear the crackle of their wings.”

Vera Nazarian

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.  ∞♥∞
