God’s answer is some form of peace. All pain
Is healed; all misery replaced with joy.
All prison doors are opened. And all sin
Is understood as merely a mistake.
Father, we will forgive Your world, and let creation be Your Own. We have misunderstood all things. But we have not made sinners of the holy Sons of God. What You created sinless so abides forever and forever. Such are we. And we rejoice to learn that we have made mistakes which have no real effects on us. Sin is impossible, and on this fact forgiveness rests upon a certain base more solid that the shadow world we see. Help us forgive, for we would be redeemed. Help us forgive, for we would be at peace.
It was a beautiful Christmas day, restful, fun, filling and full of love and laughter. There was some real sharing, real connecting with each other and a Skype link with those who couldn’t be present. If Christ was at our table he would have been happy with how we spent his birthday.
