This week I have something special for you. If you’re listening to this episode when it drops, it’s Christmas Day—a day that is so very loaded with activity and emotions. And sometimes it’s easy to focus on the busyness and the feelings that there’s no room to be still, and experience the wonder of the birth of Jesus.
So this is your invitation into a space meant to quiet your mind, bring peace to your soul, hope to your heart and joy to–not only the world–but your world.
Please, feel free to come to a complete stop for these few minutes, maybe darken the room, sit in the light of your tree or a candle or two. If you have a nativity scene, you might want to place it in view, and let me re-introduce you to each character…because each had a place and a purpose in the Story.
Together they form the tapestry of our Christmas Celebration.
Yet, individually, each speaks to us in a different manner…from a different angle…from a different set of experiences.
Let’s enter in…
