We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature--trees, flowers, grass--grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence...We need silence to be able to touch souls. --Mother Teresa

Words to Ponder

This is the Christmas Card that we received from my husband's uncle, Father Ed. He is an author and artist, as well as a retired priest. We have several prints from him--they are gorgeous! He does beautiful cards at Christmas.

This one struck me just right....something about the message inside....

"The wonderment of Christmas
is God enfleshed in Jesus,
and in all people and all matter.

All the earth becomes Bethlehem
as God takes on human flesh
in unexpected places
and unlikely persons,
like you and me."

I kept it out when I put away the Christmas stuff. I even bought a frame to put it in. Simply to remind me to have the Christmas Spirit all year round..........
