Christmas Eve


Christ is something for each particular sense of the soul. He is called LIGHT so that my soul may have EYES. WORD so that it might have EARS to hear. BREAD so that it may SAVOUR Him. OIL OF ANOINTING so that it may BREATHE in the fragrance of the Word. And he became FLESH, so that the inward HAND of the soul may be able to TOUCH something of the Word of Life, which fashions itself to correspond with the various manifestations of prayer and which leaves no sense of the soul untouched by God's grace.

Christmas Day has flown past. Just now I have a quiet moment between bouts of after-Christmas sale shopping. I wanted to stop by and wish you all the joys of the season. As the quiet week approaches, may you find time to do all the things you most love. May you know, each day, how very blessed and loved you are. Happy Holidays, friend. ~ Relyn
