Stopping and Listening

I hope your Christmas was filled with moments to cherish.

I am going to take this week to ponder the moments and listen for that still, small voice. Typically I feel a little "let down" after Christmas. So much anticipation and all too quickly it is gone. Everything seems to have lost its sparkle.

This time I want to carry Christmas with me all year long. Surely that is what we are meant to do - to take the gift, wrapped in the form of a tiny baby, and open it daily. All of the promises fulfilled, all the hope to come, all the grace to live, love beyond measure and so much more - given to each of us.
