(A Definition Reflection for Christmas Day)

PRESENT

You are present.
Existing.
You have always been and always will be.

You are present.
Current.
You are with us, in us, at this very moment.

You are present.
Attentive.
You are listening, helping and always at hand.

You are present.
Here and now.
You are not a future dream but our daily reality.

You are our best present.
Gift.
You are God’s wondrous gift of love for all of us.

RECEIVE

We receive you.
Accept.
We embrace your love with humble gratitude.

We receive you.
Hear.
We silence our inner noise to listen for your word.

We receive you.
Sense.
We discern your Spirit moving within and around us.

We receive you.
Gather.
We draw together and know you are with us.

We receive you.
Welcome.
We usher you into our open, imperfect hearts…

and ask you to stay.

(Happy holidays from Karen  )
