On this first day of Winter, 2020, I’d like to share with the entire Saint Dominic Academy family the Christmas reflection I sent to my own beloved family and friends this year. I hope its words are a source of comfort and inspiration as we head into Christmas.
Let nothing you dismay…
Tidings of comfort and joy…
Old lyrics take on new meanings this year.
As we draw closer to our inner circles,
Full of sadness perhaps ,
at this time of celebration.
We long for the days of gathering with
Loved ones near and far,
Of late night trips to the shops,
Of hot chocolate with friends,
Of cuddles on Santa’s lap.
Pause for just a moment…
Look up to the stars…
And remember long ago,
A tiny family, gathered in the stable,
Had all they needed in each other.
So too, do we this year, and always…
At our own quiet hearths, we have what matters most.
