Dear Lord Baby Jesus,
I hear your cries, your cooing, your raspy breath of sleep as you lie in a bed of straw, breath of animals puffing frosty clouds around you and your family. You came to us in weakness so that we may be strong. I am weak and in my weakness, let me grasp onto your strength. Let your strength be revealed to me, so that I may show it to others; that they,too, might see your strength and experience it for themselves. May I learn to imitate your humble spirit. May I give of myself in the coming New Year and shine your unfailing light and love to others. Thank you, Lord, for coming to live with us, as one of us.
2 Corinthians 12:9 But he said to me,”My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” ” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weakness, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”
May the Blessings and Spirit of Christmas follow us into the New Year.
