Mary Knew...She Still Knows
Christmas is holy and hard. It is full of warmth, hope and joy in seeing loved ones. It is delight in seeing the excitement of the children. There can also be moments of extreme isolation, doubt, and threading a way through family hot spots. There is the soul uplifting music of a beautiful church service, a grand choir. A wave of anguish for the world. The pleasure of a lovely meal. The wonder and the wondering. Entering this Holy tide we do not come in unencumbered bliss.
