Christmas Day 2014

Look up, you whose gaze is fixed on this earth,
who are spellbound by the little events and changes on the face of the earth.
Look up, you who have turned away from heaven disappointed.
Look up, you whose eyes are heavy with tears
and who are heavy and who are crying…
Look up, you who, burdened with guilt, cannot lift your eyes.
Look up, your redemption is drawing near.
Something from what you see daily will happen.
Just be aware, be watchful, wait just another short moment.
Wait and something quite new will break over you:
God will come.

-Dietrich Bonhoeffer (God is in the Manger: Reflections of Advent and Christmas)
