“We have a story as it has been told for nearly two thousand years, the story of a man who changed history in a way we have hardly begun to comprehend. When we have held true to the story it has been a life-giving one. When we have tried to control or manipulate or legalize it, it has been the cause of mayhem and murder. We do not own stories, and when we try to limit them, squeeze the life out of them, lose the love that gave them to use and fall back on that fatal human flaw, pride, we’re right back to Adam and Eve who listened to the power of the snake instead of the creativity of God.”~ Madeleine L’Engle, in “Bright Evening Star”
Joy to the World,
the Lord is come.
Let earth receive her King. Let every heart prepare Him room,
and heaven and nature sing.
May the Blessings of Christmas be with you,
May the Christ Child light your way,
May God’s holy angels guide you,
And keep you safe each day.”
As we celebrate the incarnation today, I admit that I don’t understand how it is possible, but God…
May hope and joy be yours today. ~ Kathie Evenhouse
