Divinity invades our earthly lives every day but the Christ Child wants to invade our lives, especially on Christmas Day.
Christmas is not an event within history but is rather the invasion of time by eternity. -Hans Urs Von Balthasar
He Will Come
He will come.
I can trust that He will come.
For He comes even on a frosty whisper,
Lighting the darkness with pinpoints of hope
Just as the stars appear each dark night.
He will come,
In spite of myself;
His arrival does not depend on my preparations.
Only that I wait expectantly in the dark.
In the silence
If I open my inner stable door.
He will come like a tiny child
Silently slipping into the open spaces in my heart.
My heart burns with newborn life.
He always Comes.
