It may seem hackneyed to many to wish everyone joy and peace at Christmas. Of course I wish people joy all year round but the season can focus our attention on higher things rather than the battle to keep making ends meet and feeding the family.

Whatever your circumstances I hope that you have what you wish for – at least in part – it may be that it is never good to have all that we desire.

Christmas Quatrain

Celebrate God’s gift of joy

above the transient broken toy,

Dedicate these festive days

to loving kindness in countless ways.
