Joy to the World


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!



About sstyves

A Canadian prairie girl rooted in Ignatian spirituality, I seek God in all things. Whether I catch a glimpse of the Divine and delight in its presence in nature or in the beauty of an encounter with someone, I am ever so grateful that I can recognize the Creator. I greet each new day with hope and happiness, expecting blessings and miracles because I am created to praise, love and serve God. This blog is one way of realizing that through my writings, prayers, and photography. To God be the Glory!
