The gift is given silently…

How silently, how silently
The wondrous gift is given!
So God imparts to human hearts
The blessings of His heaven.
No ear may hear His coming,
But in this world of sin,
Where meek souls will receive him still,
The dear Christ enters in.

 

1.  Find a couple of candles and light them.
2.  Switch of the lights, the tv, the radio, the mobile phone, the iPad.
3.  Watch the flame until your mind settles.
4.  Use the words from the carol above.  Repeat them.  And wait.  The gift will be given.

“In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” – John 1: 4 – 5
