Today, 2022 comes to an end and 2023 begins. Last week we celebrated a new beginning with the Christ's birth which will bring about an ending, and an eternal beginning. Are we preparing or do we just plan on letting them take us by surprise? Glory be to the Father!
Jesus (Second Person of God) was born and lived for a specific purpose. We (Children of God) are also born and live for a specific purpose. Jesus fulfilled His! Are we fulfilling ours? Glory be to the Father!
Christmas didn't come yesterday and now it's over. It has just begun. We can continue to unwrap God's gift to us each and every day through prayer, reading scripture, and participating in the sacraments. The live giving gift is life long. Glory be to the Father!
On this eve day we can choose to remain in the hecticness, or embrace the solemnness of just exactly what happened 2,000 years ago and the impact it can have on our lives right here right now. Let our souls be filled with peace. Praise God!
