Christmas is for the brokenhearted too. Maybe even more so for those of us who hurt.
It’s hope, residing in dark and uncomfortable places and the promise that our pain is temporary. It’s turning away from fear in order to choose Light and Love (even if we are still afraid.)
Christmas is for the children — and everyone who needs a Father.
Happy birthday, Jesus. Merry Christmas, world!
Hark the Herald by Julianna Yuri Snow, age 3.
– Her favorite version was Carrie Underwood’s. You can hear the influence in the way she lingers over the last few notes “New….born….King….”
– “God and sinner” becomes “golden singer”…because you could never have enough sparkle. (Sometimes, she sang “Joyful all the Asians rise” instead of “nations rise”.)
Merry Christmas, my sweet Julianna.
