Grace and Peace to you.
I wish for you the deep blessings of Christmas.
May the nearness of God touch you.
May you sense the holiness near you.
May beauty arise even in the plainest places.
May you be filled with gratitude
for every gift, and every giving person, in your life.
May the coming of the little child, small and weak,
give you hope and courage.
May you be filled with wonder.
May you know God’s deep desire to be close by you,
even in your darkest times.
May all your hurts and wounds, your doubts and fears,
find comfort in the presence of the Vulnerable One.
May God’s love, poured out into the world,
fill your heart to overflowing.
May Christ be born in you this Christmas.
