A Merry Christmas to RevGals and Pals of Good Cheer!
Last night at Midnight Mass the lovely words of John's Gospel rang out:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through him, and without him not one thing came into being. What has come into being in him was life, and the life was the light of all people. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.
I thought with gratitude, then, of my many blessings. The RevGals and the friendships formed in this community are chief among the blessings that pour forth from the Word of God in my life - in many of our lives.
Questing Parson has marked his participation in this group, and his gratitude for it, with a wonderful gift to Heifer International, one of the RevGals' favorite charities! Be sure to click on the link open this wonderful gift and send a thank-you back to QP! Props to him for the most appropriate gift he could have chosen! :)
How are you celebrating the Light in your life today? Today's is an open thread and you all are invited to share, in the comments or in a link to their own blog-posts, your celebrations of the Birth of the Christ and your reflections on it.
