 Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love,
    for in you I trust.
Make me know the way I should go,
    for to you I lift up my soul.

~Psalm 143:8

There was never a night or a problem that could defeat sunrise or hope.

Bernard Williams

When you arise in the morning,
think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive –
to breathe,
to think,
to enjoy,
to love.

Marcus Aurelius

It is good to be children sometimes,
and never better than at Christmas
when its mighty Founder was a child Himself.

Love came down at Christmas,
Love all lovely, Love Divine;
Love was born at Christmas;
Star and angels gave the sign.

~C.S. Lewis “Mere Christianity”,

“Every time you make a choice you are turning the central part of you,the part that chooses,
into something a little different from what it was before.
And taking your life as a whole,
with all your innumerable choices, all your life long you are slowly turning this central thing either into a heavenly creature or into a hellish creature: either into a creature that is in harmony with God, and with other creatures,
and with itself, or else into one that is in a state of war and hatred with God, and with its fellow creatures, and with itself. To be the one kind of creature is heaven: that is joy and peace and knowledge and power. To be the other means madness, horror, idiocy, rage, impotence, and eternal loneliness. Each of us at each moment is progressing to the one state or the other.”

 When they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy.

~Matthew 2:10

Every year we celebrate the holy season of Advent, O God.
Every year we pray those beautiful prayers of longing and waiting,
and sing those lovely songs of hope and promise.
