Silent Anticipation


Sitting alone in the dark quiet of Christmas Eve morning among the twinkling of the Christmas tree and flickers from the fireplace beholds a special silent anticipation.

Before others awake adding excitement to the environment, I am enveloped in this serene moment of stillness. While mezmorized by the lights, my thoughts are filled with a steady stream of faces coming to mind…family, friends, colleagues and pets. These thoughts are joined by the first hint of dawn’s light in the morning sky.

This is the joy of Christmas, being grateful for all we are given and knowing there is even greater joy in celebrating the birth of our savior. Silent anticipation of eternal joy.  Gratitude for the blessings of the day.
