Not to be Afraid

The God of love who gave us life
sent his only Son 
to be with us at all times 
and in all places,
so that we never have to feel lost in our struggles
but always can trust that he walks with us ....

Christmas is the renewed invitation 
not to be afraid and let him -- 
whose love is greater than our own hearts and minds can comprehend -- 
be our companion.

~ Henri Nouwen

As a 14 month follower of your blog I never miss an update. But I must admit, I have avoided this site for a week. Your words have been intertwined with my own prayers and healing. But our Father brought me here, right now, in his perfect timing. I have read your words. I have been blessed.

(maybe you have become my Henri)

Merry Christmas from a faithful reader in Tennessee

i was so happy to read this christmas post dear tricia..
i appreciate that at least two days in the and easter that men and women and boys and girls hear about the love of god and i am sure that god gives them this chance to embrace his son, the lord jesus who was born and who grew up and died on the cross for their redemption..

i pray that you and your whole family had a peaceful christmas....loe terry
