Longest night

Luke 2:8-10
The Shepherds and the Angels
In that region there were shepherds living in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. Then an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for see—I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people:

May the sparkle and glitter of each Christmas card we receive
bring messages from friends that surround us with love
May the twinkling lights on trees in homes and in streets
pierce the swirling darkness of our loss
May each Carol we hear sung or played in season
become a melody that infiltrates our song of grief
May shepherds and angels whatever their age
whisper the Christmas story again in our ears
A story of light dispelling darkness
Of hope overcoming despair
Of joy penetrating sorrow
And of love born in a stable 
to stay with us forever.
