Love Wins . . . Always

Christmas is love.  It’s the amazing “why” of Christmas.  

John wrote the “why” of Christ’s birth in chapter 3 of his book:  

“For God so loved the world . . .” 

The words are worth knowing and repeating as often as possible.  So.  Yes.  I’m repeating these epic words on this

Red-Letter Day.

Christmas tilts the way we see the world BECAUSE of the “why.”  When our “why” is based on the relentless love of God for each and everyone  . . . then . . . our world will turn upside-down right.  This love is open to everyone.  This love is the wonder of Christmas. This love is the win of all wins.   

This was the celebration of Tim’s home-day in December.   (Many adoptive families now refer to the day  as gotcha day.)

This amazing love is underlined with a million asterisks in today’s Advent thought.  May you experience the wonder of this love in every season–Kerrie

Love wins.
