Christmas — Love Reaching Out

An outdoor wreath with the best message -- JOY

An outdoor wreath with the message — JOY


Good Evening, God!

Since Time is held in the palm of Your Hand, God, I thought I’d just go ahead and greet You from my point of view. Now I’m smiling, God. My POV is SO LIMITED! True, we have discovered BILLIONS of other galaxies keeping us company in the Universe. And our finest minds are working on how this all came to be. How indeed!

Time and Space — so vast, God. And now we are going SMALL too with the Higgs Boson Particle(s). And here we are with only a Century Life Span — more or less. I’m starting the book Innumeracy: Mathematical Illiteracy and Its Consequences and already I have discovered that one million seconds will take eleven days but one billion seconds will take almost 32 years. Yikes! I confess, that I don’t even want to know what a trillion seconds would be!

So, God, it was a great comfort to sit in church this morning celebrating the First Sunday in Advent. The first Sunday of the church’s New Year. This is where we begin the annual celebration of You interacting with us. I love it. I love it as history — and as story. I am enough of a story teller to admire its simplicity and its complexity. It brings me Great Joy.

Joy — that small and finite and flawed as I am — I am LOVED. I am known by name and loved. WOW! But, LOVE is to be SHARED. Love delights in extending itself for others. Others around the World . . . and at Home . . . with Your Help, God . . . with Your Help.
