today: merry? yes.

long lay the world in sin and error pining
til he appeared and the soul felt its worth
a thrill of hope the weary world rejoices
for yonder breaks a new and glorious morn

mild he lay his glory by, born that man no more may die

May your Christmas be full of life and love, of family and laughter, of joy and hope. May you find yourself calming your heart and considering a story that invites you to believe. May it provoke your faith. May it stir your core. May you see Jesus. May the spirit of the season be giving and surrender, grace and peace. May you and yours yield weariness that you may rejoice.

Virgin birth. Incarnate God. His humility trumpeting goodness, salvation and peace. God in a manger, the world redeemed.

Merry Christmas? How can it not be?

May the Light that pushes back darkness form the arch that canopies your life this holiday season. Life is beautiful; God, good.
