Merry Christmas!

I remembered you all and lifted your intentions in my prayers and will continue to keep you in prayer during our Christmas season.

I ran behind this year. Still have a few gifts to buy.  Never got my cards done and out.  I was behind on wrapping, cleaning, cooking.  And, I started early!

I absolutely love every moment of our holy season.  I love the tree, the ornaments and decorations passed through generations, the intensity of the prayer and presence of Christ, spending time with friends and family, preparing food that I think everyone will enjoy, doing crafts...etc.

I could do without the heaviness we carry in our hearts from the presence of people we loved who are now with Christ.  I think about and pray for/with relatives and friends who have died quite often - feel their intercessions.  So, I am always taken back by the intensity of the loss I feel for each of them.   I suppose it reminds us of the powerful the impact each of us makes upon the lives of others.

It really is a wonderful life.
