Lord Jesus, Master of both the light and the darkness, send your Holy Spirit upon our preparations for Christmas. We who have so much to do seek quiet spaces to hear your voice each day. We who are anxious over many things look forward to your coming among us. We who are blessed in so many ways long for the complete joy of your kingdom. We whose hearts are heavy seek the joy of your presence. We are your people, walking in darkness, yet seeking the light. To you we say, “Come Lord Jesus!” Amen.

- A prayer of writer, Henri J.M. Nouwen

{I’m so excited about Christmas, I can hardly stand it! Choosing to wait and delay the gratification, when I pushed play on the Christmas playlist on my iPod last Friday….it was so worth it. Regular posts to come soon. My Thanksgiving was amazing and I have the pictures to prove it!}
