What's Your Wish?
Well, with the Christmas carols playing, what is your Christmas wish? I wish for my dad to be okay and for a chance to meet granddaughter Chloe. For you – maybe it is toilet paper! Maybe it is a job to return to, or insurance that outlasts the stay-at-home orders. Maybe it is for the economy to recover, so your retirement fund lasts. Or maybe it is simpler. To better appreciate each day as a gift. To have a chance to slow down and appreciate nature. To see a movie. To watch live sports. In the meantime, circumstances have pushed the pause button on life as we knew it. It is a chance to call those we used to meet with. To write those we used to visit. To live the day a bit more slowly and intentionally. And yes, to celebrate Emmanuel – God with us – and not just at Christmas.
