You are far too beautiful to leave me.

I am standing in a half-filled theater in the middle of a sort-of snow storm. Finals are looming in the distance and the whole thing, the whole Christmas-time, finals week, work stress, bumpy sort of month is weighing on me heavy. I stand there and listen to the musicians on stage sing joyful songs about Christmas and the people around me sing them out just as joyfully and I look up at the string-lights, Christmas-tree decorated stage and I said a prayer.

I wanted that joy. The joy that comes with the Incarnation.

And You, Father, You give joy in abundance.

You gave joy in abundance.
