musings from linda 12/22/23

It’s CHRISTMAS!! — a day of amazing news!  

The angel said: “Fear NOT! Look — I being you GOOD NEWS... your Savior is born!”


When was the last time YOU experienced angels?

Well, maybe not the ones with wings... but perhaps when receiving a token of love or a tender kiss? When you receive superior care from a team of physicians and nurses?  Or maybe when you receive an unexpected blessing?


American theologian, philosopher, educator and civil rights activist Howard Thurman

suggests the need for angels in EVERYONE’S life...


      “ There must be always, remaining in everyone’s life

         Someplace for the singing of angels.

         Someplace for that which in itself is breathless and beautiful.


         Old burdens become lighter. 

         Deep and ancient wounds lose much of their old hurting.

         A crown is placed over us that for the rest of our lives we are trying to grow 

             tall enough to wear. 


        Despite all the crassness of life, despite the hardness of life,

        Despite all the harsh discords of life,

        Life is saved by the singing of angels."

In this season of miracles, it is easy to experience the singing of angels because we are surrounded by so MUCH amazing music —inspired by the advent of the Christ child into our broken world! 

“ His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor! Mighty God! Everlasting Father!  Prince of Peace...”

How might YOU be an angel to someone else this Christmas?            


                           MERRY CHRISTMAS!!                 HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
