Making ROOM

I used to be disturbed about the commercialism surrounding Christmas, and that where I live we start seeing Christmas trees and decorations at shopping malls in October. But recently I realized what a great gift it is to be reminded, at any time, of the Christmas message. So I decided to appreciate it all, including the trees and lights and decorations, and to pray for a greater awareness of what it all represents.

Christmas is meant to wake us up to new ways of making room in both our hearts and lives for God—who is Love itself—to reveal His gifts of peace and of joy, already at hand. And I've been celebrating that new view of Christmas. It all started when I was visiting dear friends at the time their baby was born.
