Reflect: “It was Christ who chose the stable to be born in and who continues to choose unlikely places. In each of us, just beyond the noise of our outward life, there is some place of silence and darkness, an emptiness where, if we have courage enough, we are alone with ourselves.” (Caryll Houselander) In the unlikely stable of our hearts, in our waywardness and doubt, He longs to say: I am here and I love you!
Share: Take 5 minutes to reflect on the ways that Jesus has been present in the seemingly unlikely moments of your life. Then…THANK HIM! Gratitude opens our hearts to receive His love and it grows our faith. Then…THANK one of the people who showed Jesus’ love in that ‘unlikely moment’. DEO GRATIAS!
