During that Christmas season, I would end our conversations this way: “Good bye. I love you. Merry Christmas!” It wasn’t long before little Hannah caught on and would repeat, “Goodbye, I love you. Merry Christmas!” This is how we concluded all our calls during the month of December.
While Jesus is not walking among us, the Christ-power he lived is. I think of the Christ as the touch of the spirit of God enlightening human consciousness to the awareness of Immanuel, or God with us. It is the living presence of the power of God, His divine healing influence. It is here for all mankind, for all time. It isn’t seasonal.
Hannah is a college graduate now. But we smile at each other when we remember that sweet exchange - “Good bye, I love you, Merry Christmas.”
