obscure delights of Christmas

"...the spirit of Christmas is a paradox precisely because its largeness is made manifest in the smallest of ways: in little kindnesses, tiny pleasures, and obscure delights among ordinary people in the simplest of circumstances."

                                                      - from Christmas Spirit, by George Grant and Gregory Wilbur


  1. Just so! Wishing you many Christmas blessings and health and happiness in the new year, Lisa. ♥

    1. Thank you, Susan! This same thought was also in Magnificat today - did you see it? It says, "The salvation for which we wait can come to us in small, unrecognized ways. That is the way of the Incarnation."
      (I am going to write to you!)

  2. Lovely quote.... May each day of Christmas bring you more tiny pleasures and large joys.

  3. Hi Lisa,
    Wishing you a peaceful and healthy New Year! ♡

  4. I love this quote too! A Happy and Healthy New Year to you and yours, Lisa!
