On this day of Advent,
I remember to let love open my heart
and inspire my life.
So we have known and believe the love that God has for us.—1 John 4:16
God is love, and those who abide in love abide in God,
and God abides in them.
Each year we never know when the silence that is so fragile and so powerful will fall. Yet when we allow it to penetrate our own interior and risk sharing it with the grieving soul standing next to us, we can truly recover the light that is beyond words and understanding. That love and light that shine from each of us. The shimmer that is the true meaning of this holy night, this silent night.—Rev. Kelly Isola
