Christmas Eve

“ A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices,
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.”

2012 has been a tough year.  To be honest, I am just a little bit weary of brokenness and sadness.

I am so ready for the time when, as Tolkien and Sally Lloyd Jones put it, "everything sad will come untrue."

But in the midst of this year, I have enjoyed countless moments of laughter, hugs, love, and joy.  I have seen the love of the Church and the provisions of God.  I have cuddled my son, spent time with my family, and rejoiced with my family as we get ready to welcome a new in-law!

And tonight, I will celebrate the birth of a little baby 2,000 years ago--a little baby who came to redeem this broken world. 

"He will make everything the way it was always meant to be."

Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!
