God is here. God is with us. Emmanuel. It might be only in a glimmer, a single cheery word or heartfelt wish. Or it might fill the hours until the seams of the day itself is bursting. But He is here.
God with man is reconciled. This is what Christmas wrought.
The day looms before me. Deadlines. Conflict. Tension. Sore muscles. Breaks that are all too short. Work hours that are all too long.
Where is the song?
But in moments of silence, when I quiet my heart, I hear it. “High above the trees, with a voice as big as the sea.”
It is a song of hope.
