Dwelling Among Us

My daughter Naomi wrote this today:
When you think about Christmas, what images come to mind? Twinkling lights on a tree loaded with gifts beneath its boughs?  Snowflakes drifting lazily through the crisp air? Reindeer and a sleigh with a jolly fat man circling the globe? Family, friends, love, warmth, tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy? And when you think of the Nativity, the time of Jesus' birth, do you picture a silent night with a virgin so tender and mild rocking her baby no crying he makes with the cattle lowing and the angels singing sweetly from the sky?

All of those images come to my mind.  But a new picture of Christmas has been emerging in my consciousness and it's impossible for me to see the picture any other way now.
Take to read the rest of what she wrote--you can read it by clicking here. You'll be glad you did.
