It is the season of the heart

A special time of caring

The ways of love made clear

It is the season of the spirit

The message, if we hear it

Is make it last all year

 

Our family was commenting last night (Christmas Eve) about how it didn’t seem like Christmas.  Some years are like that, I think.  The spirit doesn’t grab hold of us like other years.  One thing that helps me get in the spirit of Christmas is watching A Muppet Christmas Carol.  We watched it this afternoon and, as always, it spoke to my heart of what Christmas is about.  The birth of Christ is God’s love for us made clear and our job is to share that love with the world, not just in December but all year long. 

 

Yes, and every night will end

And every day will start

With a grateful prayer

And a thankful heart
