A Downloadable Christmas Blessing
from The Lives We Actually Have
Hello my dear,
It’s Advent, that special time of year leading up to Christmas when we are all waiting with bated breath for the kingdom of God to break in. And in the meantime, we need to bless the days we have. So here is a blessing for you. A Blessing for Love to Come at Christmas.
This blessing is from my forthcoming book, The Lives We Actually Have: 100 Blessing for Imperfect Days. It’s available now.
And if you are looking to go deeper this Advent, we’ve put together a 4-week Advent Devotional, The Season of Waiting. My hope and prayer is that this Advent Devotional will be a way for you to make the very act of waiting, holy.
The Lives We Actually Have
100 Blessings for Imperfect Days
Warm and witty blessings found within the struggles of our shared humanity, from the New York Times bestselling authors of Good Enough.
Formatted like a prayer book, The Lives We Actually Have is an oasis and a landing spot for weary souls, with blessings that focus on the full range of human moments: garbage days, lovely days, grief-stricken days, and even (especially) completely ordinary days.
