Now this is the reason for making a little magic in your house for the holidays! This was two years ago but Harrison is still excited about Christmas. I think I will put up that tree tomorrow. If I turn on only the tree lights when I get home in the evening I won't even see the dirt and dust on the floor!
"The deaf shall hear the words of a book; and out of gloom and darkness, the eyes of the blind shall see. (Isaiah 29:18)
This is the miracle of the advent season to me; that these words can travel through centuries to rouse hope in weary souls. There is hope and light in the darkness! And it is all around me.
