In the Eve of Simplicity

In the Eve of Christmas, the window of our hearts, however stained, opens freely and radiates with possibilities given in the Birth and the Resurrection of Christ.
      ---G. Hill
Yet we are a kaleidoscope of complicated intricacies. A million different facets of light and darkness, moving and shifting.
           – K.M.Keeton
We look through the kaleidoscope of God and seeing God’s face in so many ways, as friends, as strangers, passersby, country roads, jammed freeways, the cancer ward, the maternity ward – all the faces of God surround you at all times.
              – Frederick Lenz
And we are also surrounded by holiday symbology that both delight and sadden us in a marvelous and continuous shapeshifting of broken-up shards of color. 
       G. Hill
It is this very brokenness that allows us to knit together, kaleidoscope style. And we spin and turn to the light, finding our focus.  Then suddenly and brilliantly we are revealed; unexpected beauty born directly from brokenness. 
         – Jeanette LeBlanc
And not too far away in a manger, swaddled in simplicity, the broken pieces knit together.  Distractions gone; it becomes so clear.  Love is born and pulses deep inside of you.
         G. Hill
