‘Then Jesus came out wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe. Pilate said to them, “Here is the man! ” (John 19:5 HCSB)
Hello, BelovedOne –
The holly of a Christmas season is a reminder of my King. Blood red berries ooze out from leaves deep and green. The berries, the color of the blood of the Life-Force that keeps us healed and dangerous and life-giving to others… His blood, forever covering scars on the inside where they belong and beating steady-on a careful warmth for others on the outside where it belongs.
Not the other way around.
Leave the warmth of your touch.
