Someone sent this to Rusty and Lynette, and seeing as Henri Nouwen is one of my all time favorites.... I just had to share it here too. Merry Christmas friends. May you find joy this season in His presence.
Lord Jesus, Master of both the light and the darkness
send your Holy Spirit upon us this season.
We who have much to do
seek quiet spaces to hear
Your voice each day.
We who are anxious over many things
look forward to Your coming among us.
We who are blessed in so many ways
long for the complete joy of Your kingdom.
We whose hearts are heavy
seek the joy of Your presence.
We are your people
walking in darkness, yet seeking the light.
To You we say, Come Lord Jesus.
