Wordsmithing Magic from the Crossroads

Joy to the World! The Shining Christmas Candle

All five advent candles lit with tree and wreath sparkling

We cannot do great things on this Earth, only small things with great love.
Mother Teresa

Tis the day before Christmas, and hopefully, you are settling in where you most dearly wish to be. Whether this holiday is deeply spiritual for you or not, its heart is Good, and is an offering of hope and rebirth that humanity could surely benefit from.

Either way, if you are looking for something festive to do, then I highly recommend a quick (masked! safe!) venture out — not for more shopping — but to slip someone who needs it a small, clandestine miracle or random act of kindness. Or two.

I bet you can think of lots of creative ways to play Secret Santa during this sacred moment of stillness.

Botanical illustration for design.Meantime, tonight at midnight, or tomorrow morning if you prefer, for those of you who are celebrating Christmas, it is time for you to light your final, center candle.

As before, you’ll light each of the previous ones, but then, the moment of the Divine Birth is celebrated.

With its light, welcome the Redeemer, the Bringer of Light, and vow to renew your own part in the ancient promise of faith, hope, and love that was given on this most holy night.

For we all agree that the greatest of these is love.


Thank you for being a part of the 17th annual Advent Sun Wreath Ceremony. I can honestly say it’s been the best one yet.

Wishing peace on Earth and good will to all.
Blessed be.

Thank you Beth for holding this sacred space for us this year as in previous ones. Your words throughout the year give hope as well. Your readings, your presence in this space are a gift in themselves. Blessings of the season to you and your family of choice. Amber in England.
