Child

Christmas Postcard by Joyce Martelli

In the midst of the wrappings, the crumbs from the cinnamon buns, and the morse code beeping of incoming facetime calls, we pause and consider the child. A helpless infant, born in poverty to parents who have no place to stay in the middle of nowhere embodies the peace, love, joy, and hope of generations. This documented life from the four gospels urges us to walk the way of love.

We hear the call as it hurls through time and through the commercial Christmas distractions. Let us love one another, it cries.

Walk toward the cry, pick it up, hold it close, and answer yes. I will love you.
