An open heart requires time: time to think, to feel, and to process of all that we encounter. The Christmas season makes it very difficult to have an open heart. Yet, the Christmas story is about a God who took the time and made the sacrifices to open Himself to each of us. The constant, unchanging love of God calls us into His presence. When all others let us down, when we let ourselves down, when the 'idols' of our heart are tipped over and their inadequacy revealed, God's love embraces us. In this season of love, may we each take time to soak in the blessing of His love and then open our love-soaked hearts to those who need refreshment. May we each be vessels of His love overflowing on those walking with us!
