There are times when we see things and other times when we really see things. While driving home every night I see the sun set, but last night, I saw it differently. This past week I have seen so many people on the streets who are homeless, but when I went for coffee on Monday – I “saw” a homeless woman.
As we enter into this Christmas season, we will all have opportunities to see things. Christmas lights – Christmas trees – old friends and family – Christmas gifts. However, here is my hope – that the glimmer and glitz, the wrapping paper and presents – the parties and gatherings – that all of those things we see won’t be enough.
To you who are reading this and those who are not, I pray that our eyes and our hearts connect this Holiday.
“Said the night wind to the little lamb – do you see what I see? The child, the child, sleeping in the night – He will bring us goodness and light.” Merry Christmas.
