It was a festive spirit that embodied my being aw we celebrate the joyful Christmas and our anniversary. Unlike last year, I completed the 9 misas de gallo, but now we only attended on the 9th morning. The theme centered on the beacon of light brought by the birth of our Savior. Emmanuel. The homily was meaningfully expressed by the presider centering on our inner peace seeking for the light. For the record, it did not put me into sleep the fact that it was early morning. Instead, it established a trance that supported my faith to experience the inner peace once more. As the light portrays its magnificence in the pangs of darkness and sorrow, I decided and hoped to think outside the box and capture the deepest blessings that I am enjoying-grace. The words that healed my past, strengthened my will power and uplifted my soul have molded me to be strong in life. Grace indeed summarized my limited faculty and the incomprehensibility of the Father. The pride, diligence and hard work that have enthroned my self into the selfish side of the world have been outshone by the immense and immeasurable grace that/Who touched my heart.
This Christmas is an inevitable realization that within me, is also an access to the Light and to the Prince of Peace. With this grace, it ignited my inner peace to see the shining light and recognize my blessings.
The challenging and fruitful experiences we shared make this "remembering season" remarkable but the time we shared and moments we spent with Him this season make it special. Very special.
