There are so many miracles, large and small that are celebrated today and tonight. I love that the last night of Chanukah coincides with the first day of Christmas. That the Winter Solstice and the blessed Dark with animals whispering gleefully to one another occurs when the reindeer have to start their round the world trip.
(Joke of the day… you know the difference between caribou and reindeer? reindeer fly!)
And then in the midst of winter, a babe. I love that as we celebrate the holiness of Christmas and the birth of one particular babe, we will also sing: Each night a child is born is a holy night.”
Could we remember that all babies need cherishing and nurturing? Could we remember that every child needs to be fed?
My congo runs a program that supports weekend backpacks for kids, offering two breakfasts, two lunches, two snacks. You can donate over at Love Flows
Make the difference in a child’s having enough to eat… It may be the sweetest gift you ever give.
I wish you all the blessings and happiness of whatever you’re celebrating. and oh, how I wish us all Joy to the World and Peace on Earth. And sunrises as beautiful as this one.
