Give yourself this morning, nine days before Christmas, to be filled with joy! Amidst the busy-ness of the holiday season and amidst all that drags down your spirits, God wants you to know that there is love, mercy and peace right now.
The prophet Isaiah proclaimed God’s presence in the world so beautifully that we proclaim his words even now each Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
