Merry Christmas!  May you see all the good and strange gifts that are given this season as evidence that the Christ-Child is the perfect gift, given to us even before we can appreciate him.  May you welcome him in, share this love, and be guided by his light. 

For
"t he light shines in the darkness, and the Dark Side did not overcome it. "

Blessings on your holiday season.
