I drove home in the midst of blowing snow that caused low visibility. I just kept thanking God for keeping me safe. Wintry roads are scary sometimes. Tonight as I look at my candles I feel peace settle into my bones. I realize I am quite tired. I hope I am in bed early tonight. I am still writing my Christmas letter which is usually in the mail by now but this year will be different. I am more interested in Joy in my world than trying to meet deadlines this year.
Two days more of work with the holiday concert scheduled for tomorrow evening. I have both a staff breakfast and a luncheon tomorrow. Friday should be slower and more relaxed. Tonight I relax into the candlelight and remember what the season is for. This Child that we await is a precious gift that bestows such profound joy upon us. Joy to the world. The Lord is coming!
