In light of the tragedies this past week my heart has been heavy. It’s been hard to focus on work. Hard to focus on anything and everything. Things on my to do list have seemed so trivial when families are mourning.
I sat down at my desk this afternoon while Grayson was napping and Brian was catching up on work, and looked at my calendar for advent. I had paused the post I had for today, I wrote it a few weeks ago and so much has changed since them. So much has changed in the last 24 hours. But the song for today seems fitting.
Love is raining down on the world tonight, there’s a presence here I can tell.
God is in us, God is for us, God is with us, Emmanuel
I feel compelled to tell all who will listen, that peace on earth is not so out of reach. If we can find grace and mercy and forgiveness, he’s has come to save, he is all of these.
I don’t have any words to follow this. Just a request that you really listen to the lyrics and reflect. Let’s not let the enemy take this season away from us. Let’s not let Christmas pass us by, but let’s truly celebrate the hope that we have because of Jesus’ birth.
