Heaven In Her Arms

Ahhh, the last Sunday in Advent...

Santa visited the neighborhood today.

And today we finally put up the tree and decorated the house inside and out. It looks like Christmas. Our time of waiting is almost complete.

But what makes it really feel like Christmas? Especially in the sense that it provokes that uncontrollable response of tears? This quote, just read...

"Every mother, when she picks up the young life that has been born to her, looks up to the heavens to thank God for the gift which made the world young again. But here was a mother, a madonna, who did not look up. She looked down to Heaven, for this was Heaven in her arms." Archbishop Fulton Sheen
