full. yep, I'm full: of Christmas food and gifts (oh, the resolutions that will come of this...), and WORD - as I say "thank You, thank You" in the darkness lit by candlelight.
my eyes have been renewed - and I see them standing there, finally in His presence - in Light. and I say 'thank You, thank You'
Emmanuel, filler of space hidden in darkness. Lighter of hearts cold and longing. The fullness of God - miracle of Incarnation, in this inconsequential village on a lakeside. Incarnating, again and again - so we light canldles, warm at their flickers and sing "Joy'.
