A Christmas Prayer

“Nothing was certain, but everything was safe - that was part of the mystery of Love.” - Charles Williams The mystery of love... the mystery of God taking on flesh, entering the world as a child during a time of incredible unrest.

I LOVE decorating for Christmas. I love to hang lights outside, hang garland on the banister, and bring up the boxes of decorations. We buy a real tree

Shoes

In college, before every game I would sit in front of my locker and stare down at my shoes. I would soak in the moment and think to myself - imprint this moment in your brain, someday you won't be here. Yesterday, I sat in my office and had a similar moment. I recalled the first day I walked through Hope Street's doors and how I have changed the paint color in every office as I have made my way through different roles leading up to Executive Director. You can find the rest of my thoughts in my blog here So I am HERE. Fully present in the moment and so thankful for the opportunity to hear the laughing children, problem solve through the drama and celebrate the growth in the lives of men, wome
