It's a full season. Full of blessings...and busyness.
In this Christmas season of reflecting on the tangible love of God that is the Son coming in the flesh to us (incarnation), it is good for us to remember that as parents, grandparents, caregivers, etc. we are the embodiment of His love and grace to the young in the "today."
