God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith; the warmth of Christmas, which is love; the radiance of Christmas, which is purity; the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice; the belief in Christmas, which is truth; the all of Christmas, which is Christ. – W. English

Snow continues to fall here in Denver and I’m anxious about my flights early tomorrow morning. Keep your fingers crossed for me, for the weather to agree with my travel plans and connections while I hope to get out of the Midwest to spend Christmas with my family.
