MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!! My prayers and best wishes to you and your family. Thanks for sharing this blog, all your feedback and comments. God Bless – Fr. Jim
In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God.
He was in the beginning with God.
All things came to be through him,
and without him nothing came to be.
What came to be through him was life,
and this life was the light of the human race;
the light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness has not overcome it.
The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world.
He was in the world,
and the world came to be through him,
but the world did not know him.
He came to what was his own,
but his own people did not accept him.
But to those who did accept him
he gave power to become children of God,
to those who believe in his name,
who were born not by natural generation
nor by human choice nor by a man’s decision
but of God.
And the Word became flesh
and made his dwelling among us,
and we saw his glory,
the glory as of the Father’s only Son,
full of grace and truth. – Jn 1:1-5, 9-14
If we can begin to look for Him in the love and kindness and generosity of one another rather than making him some heavenly Santa to answer grown up Christmas lists containing some heavy stuff – we find something greater, something more important than we can ever imagine.
