Wonder


I see it in the little girl's eyes as she hangs Krismons on the biggest tree she's ever seen.
I see it in the man's eyes as he experiences the joy of this young one.
I see it in the eyes of the people who come for help with power and food and Christmas gifts.
I see it in your eyes as you worship and watch Hashmakaka carrying EVERYTHING.
I see it in your faces as it is announced that the carpet phase of our curb appeal project is funded.
I see it in the replies of the leaders of Family of Grace when all our positions are filled.
I see it in the faces of the choir as they sing for Advent even without a music director.
I see it in the eyes of the kids who want to play and sing at the 5:30 Christmas Eve service.
I see it in the faces of those gathered for consolation at the Longest Night services.

Everywhere I look I see wonder, and I wonder at God's presents and presence all through the year.
May you  experience wonder as we celebrate God with us.
Christmas Peace,

Pastor Mark
