Deep breath, QuietOne,
As the Holy birthday nears, it seems as if the freight train gathers steam and the extravaganzas flash at us from all directions.
Our family is steeped in traditions of the holiday season – and what a gift and treasure those traditions have become! We grow those and hold them tight from year to year and it is a THRILL to see them pass from one generation to the next! Little ways that remind each of us that this season isn’t just about hoop-la: it’s all about our Christ!
Look around you for precious ones with hearts of heaviness.
Someone needs your slightest nod. They need a moment.
Perhaps, you are the one that needs the moment.
Ask them about their favorite Christmas and about traditions they have known. Let your conversation lead to a light of JOY in their eyes. Take them to Him through their very own memories and leave them with a quietness where brokenness had been lingering too long.
‘Yahweh your God is among you, a warrior who saves. He will rejoice over you with gladness. He will bring you quietness with His love. He will delight in you with shouts of joy.” Zephaniah 3:17
