Eternal God, thank you for coming and dwelling among us. Thank you for being vulnerable and allowing us to know you. As we prepare to celebrate Christmas may you be the focus of our hearts. May the words of your love be written on our hearts and shared in the gifts we give. May the traditions of our families reflect the deep desire you have for us to love all people. Keep us close to you, allow us to know your peace. In Jesus name, Amen.
