One of my practices this advent was to do a photo-a-day with ADVENTWORD, a ministry of the Episcopal Church. Each day of Advent had a different word assigned to it and almost every day during Advent, I posted a photo I’d taken (from sometime in my life) and I wrote something to go with that word on my Instagram feed. One of the Advent words this week was HOLY… this is my poem/reflection on the word HOLY. May you pause and reflect on what is Holy to you this Christmas… and allow the Spirit that is Holy show you.
And remember, the season of Christmas starts today on December 25th and goes until Epiphany on January 6th. So you have 12 days to receive the gift of Christmas. Don’t rush it, don’t be discouraged by all you haven’t gotten done yet, or all you’d hoped would happen this year. Allow Jesus to be born into the mess of 2020 and show you his great love and his holy gift of friendship… take his hand and walk with him in 2021. Merry/Happy Christmas to you from Nashville!
